    I'm curious to know whether any of the missing documents have ever reemerged?


    Also of interest would be, what happened to all the letters sent by "Jack" were they retained or disposed of?
    I had heard from a confidential source that at least one unpublished letter has been seen framed in someones den.

    The 1891 Census [5th April] provides a glimpse of the staff and types of patients then at the Seaside Home.

    It was certainly not an environment into which you might risk sending Jack the Ripper, whether he was Kosher or Goy.

    Regards,

    Simon
    Thanks for the tip - do you happen to have those details to hand?

All very dull really.
    Tediously so.

    Gotta love the attempt to throw confusion at the mundane.

    I shall leave you to sort this out for yourself. This is my last post on Casebook or anywhere else. Illness and encroaching old age are taking their toll, and I have many other things I want to do in the years before the Grim Reaper comes a-knocking.

    So, good luck to you all, and stop believing all the nonsense you've been told.

    Regards,

    Simon
    Similar situation re age and health.

    Could you hold off a bit longer until I divest myself of all popcorn shares and holdings!

    Best of luck and thanks for the fun

    No, I thought we were exchanging metropolitan police file reference numbers.

    Was so excited when you started it.
