One off duty is transparently reflective of one off instance.

I'm thinking that's it's time to withdraw here Mike. Such omniscience is a little scary.
Yes, and as I've said, the added "e" to "post haste" implies that this was a subconscious addition due to having already written "Poste House."

Either that, or Maybrick was as thick as they come, and thought that a random "e" was just added to post in any circumstance.

People seem too willing to ignore blatant errors to lend credence to a diary that has thus far had zero evidence in its favour, yet a lot of evidence going against it.
