    Well this thread has gone completely off the rails. I'm shocked.
    Closing it until further notice.
    It's going to be a nice day tomorrow. Everywhere.
    Good day to get out of the house.

    My point still stands. Also its an obvious fake. People on this thread go on about it as if its a literary masterpiece it isn't. A child in there early teens could have written it.

    This is really strangely reasoned, Tom.

    I couldn't help noticing that you made a similar comment over on JTR Forums, implying that Barrett's phone call could have come from anywhere in the world -- Sierra Leone, Stockholm, Tokyo, the Outer Hebrides, etc.--- yet since he made it in Liverpool this is somehow suggestive...of something...

    Ah, no. It's meant to be a diary of "James Maybrick" -- a man who lived in Liverpool.

    If a bloke decides to fake a diary of Jack the Ripper, and doesn't live in London, why wouldn't he choose a local chap as the victim on his hoax?

    It would 'explain' --or at least make more probable--how he got hold of it. No bloke in Sierra Leone is going to use Maybrick, he's going to come up with some British bloke who lived in Africa at the appropriate time.

    Use your noggin', Old Bean. That the call came from Liverpool is not random once you consider the subject of this 63-page prank.

    In other words, if Barrett had lived in Sydney, his diarist would have been Frederick Deeming. If he lived in Chicago, it would have been H.H. Holmes or Neil Cream.

    He's going to need to explain how it ended up in his mitts, even if it's just a lame story about the recently departed Tony Devereux.

    Using a local yokel would be commonsense, and he's also more likely to know a historical figure from his neck of the woods.

    Considering the Provenance of the Diary. It needs to be proven to be the real deal though. Not the other way around.

    I don't think they would go that far John, what sets the diary defenders apart, is that they put everything valuable behind them and glorified a fake diary..

    It's great we get such masters of attention to detail so deeply involved in these discussions.

    We are all very lucky.
    Yes the Diary believers are the fortunate ones the same can't be said for posters like myself and the Baron unless you're talking about being correct and actually knowing useful information about Jack the Ripper.
