  • Catch me when you Can

    In connection to possible suspect Charles Lechmere/Cross as being JTR, a thought, albeit a seemingly farfetched one: in the 'from hell'-letter (the only letter not bearing any resemblance to the other ones) the author signes off with the enigmatic 'Catch me when you Can'. Note that the Wikipedia-transcript writes the C's as capitals, and you'll observe that in the original the C's indeed appear to be somewhat larger than the other letters. Could it be a clue left by Cross in which he signes off with his actual inititals? Very curious as to what you Click image for larger version

    The biggest letters are the F in "From" and the M in "Mr" - Florence Maybrick? (Only kidding!) Then again, the L in the first "Lusk", the S in "Sor" and the "I" are just as big. All five are bigger than the Cs in "Catch me when you can".

      Haha, yeah I guess you're right. Me being a newcomer to the casebook ('cadet') this might not be the best possible first post. I just found it to be an interesting thought, especially since the "C's" come after 'signed', although it's quite farfetched, especially since the handwriting of the Lusk-letter doesn't match Lechmere's at all.

        well I don't know about all that-but I would suggest a better way would be to see if lechs handwriting matches this (or dear boss for that matter.)
