      There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

        I guess the one we all want to hear now is Robert Smith's.

                    Hi Scott. The only source I drew upon for Henry Smith in the talk was his memoir. He was writing that book at about the same time Robert Anderson was writing his, but Anderson was having his serialized in Blackwood's Magazine and when the chapter about the Ripper was published, we're fortunate that Smith had time to go back and write an off-the-cuff addendum in his book in response to that. As I discussed in my talk, what he says and doesn't say is pretty informative.

                    Yours truly,

                    Tom Wescott

Karl began writing about the Whitechapel Murders online and ultimately in a blog series entitled ’10 Weeks in Whitechapel’, which was recently adapted for audio by Rippercast. His talk at the East End Conferences is about this series and is entitled ‘Ten Weeks in Whitechapel: A New Way of Telling the Story’.
