Yes, good joke! Barbers was the name of the owner of the horse slaughtering establishment in Buck's Row.

Ah, so they didn't trade as a Barbers, but it was owned by a Mr Barber. I got it now.

I would not really trust anything that Ms Cornhole discovered about that letter, or any letters for that matter. Her "Expert" found the word Ha and partial Ripper under the blacked out portion? Yeah right.

I own Letters from Hell and that letter has no resemblance to the Dear Boss/Saucy Jack, From hell, or really any others. Its totally different in tone, handwriting and content.
