    Sorry, Observer. It won't happen again.

    Now open wide... when the meds kick in you should be able to answer my watch query.

    Love,

      Needless to say, Mike's PROLOGE and CHAPTHER ONE make for pure comedy gold, and Robert was so impressed he nearly did himself a mischief laughing.

      Slight problem though, the story was meant to be deadly serious.

      Of course there are no spelling mistakes in the DAirY (bejabbers they've got me doing it now) are TrEhE, damn? Never the less, the Triple F's (Floor Board Faithful) insistence that Mike Barrett had nothing to do with the creation of the Diary (that's better) is in tact. I've all ways thought it a fake

        It wasn't erobitha's explanation; it was Mr Stewart [sorry, Mr Murphy, as erobitha says], who sold Albert the watch! He said he noticed the scratch marks [which to the naked eye just look like random scratch marks at most, not engravings] and tried to make them less obvious before putting the watch on sale. Now, he may have been trying to do the impossible, but it was what he said he did, and I see no reason why he would lie about it, can you?

        Logically, he should now be your prime suspect for making the scratch marks, so I'm looking forward to hearing how this lets him off in your opinion, while still leaving the Johnsons guilty.

        In your own time.

        Love,

        Caz

        Oh I have plenty of time at the moment, the obligatory straight jacket when entering this thread has slipped somewhat, and I can just manage to type. I can't for the life of me think why any experienced jeweler would attempt such a thing can you? Rubbing out insignificant scratches from the inside back cover to enhance the watches appearance? It's absurd. I can only think he was going along with the report, and for some strange reason he said he was the one who tried to polish out the inscriptions.

        • By the way Murphy was the watch repairer was he not? He said he didn't notice any inscriptions to the watch. So who are you saying it is who tried to polish them out?

            Have you actually read Mike's handwritten work, as posted by Ike, which was supposedly copied faithfully from ten 'missing pages' removed from the diary and kept in a bank vault in case of future need?

            And have you even read the diary facsimile, in order to make a fair and balanced comparison regarding the spelling?

            Trevor's a former cop and Columbo would like to have been a gumshoe. That's worrying enough, so please don't tell me you hold literacy classes or I think I will have the screaming abdabs and have to lie down in a darkened room.

              And why on earth do you suppose any jeweller would have done that, with people like you in the world, waiting to describe such a claim as 'absurd'?

                Great post - I loved it! (Could we get some lobster GIFs in there next time, I wonder?)

                Just a quick note of clarification before The Switchblade parks outside your gaff in the dead of night, Inside Story is definitely not a pro-Maybrick text in the sense that it doesn't have a pro-Maybrick agenda. If it reads like a pro-Maybrick text, that will be because there is a natural pro-Maybrick narrative within the Ripper history which is rarely (if ever) contradicted by the existing evidence, so Messrs Morris, Skinner, and Linder simply reported what was on the record via research and interviews and - if that caused the eventual book to feel more pro- than anti-Maybrick - that would be because that was where the evidence took them.

                We know Morris is on Interpol's Dangerous Persons list, and Skinner (who favours Druitt, by the way) and Linder look to me like a right pair of bruisers (probably recruited by Morris way back when for some of her nefarious activities) so - unless you correct yourself - I suspect that your dystopian nightmare is going to be even more dystopian than mine.

                Now, what shall I have for lunch? Oh - I know!

                Cheers,

                Ike
                Ike,

                I hope you’re not having lunch with Jane Mansfield. (See Derek and Clive)

                  Is there any of that fluorescent trifle left, I'd much prefer that?

                  And the watch. Do you think it's genuine?

                    No, the watch repairer was Timothy Dundas, who claimed there were no such scratch marks in the watch he serviced. Unfortunately, his description of this watch bore no resemblance to the Maybrick watch, which led Feldman to believe there were two watches in the story, while back in the real world it was obvious that Dundas was simply describing the wrong watch.

                        Right, but Dundas did service Mr Stewart's watch, and Dundas did say he very rarely serviced Verity watches. He still couldn't remember either of the Verity watches having inscriptions though, or he would have said as much

                          It's pointless, I can only think he had a taste of that fluorescent trifle you dish out at tea time before he would do so.

                            I'll save some trifle for you after the LOBSTER is served up, Observer.

                            If you don't swallow your lobster, how can you have any pudding?

                            Oh yes, it's a genuine gold watch. No flies on me.

                            All I know is that whoever scratched JM's signature in it was very good at scratching JM's signature in it.

                              Yes I have and there are spelling mistakes

                              Read postings from Ike? Are you serious?

                                At last. I always believed you thought that Maybrick was JTR
