Spot the difference.
I would read the key word here as "Juwes".

Why? No-one was going to ask him about it until the first day of Parliament in the autumn session so he didn't need the information until then. He requested it on the 5 November and got it the next day.

Previously you said you were interested as to why Warren et al prepared their reports on 6 November. Now you know.

Hi All,

ERRATUM

Henry Matthews' incident with "Jack," the retriever who failed to retrieve, was in October 1889.

My apologies.

Regards,

Simon

No problem Simon. Everyone makes mistakes. The police officers who tried to record the writing on the wall evidence made mistakes, just like you have made a mistake here. There's nothing more to it than that and no need to attribute any meaning to it.

One thing they did all see and record, however, was a "w" in the second word.

With several persons not being able to write down the correct word everybody might have been wrong.

A common error. They did "see" and "record" and that does not mean they were right.

But in your world you look and see (understand).

Read any Plato, by the way?

Regards, Pierre

This is certainly possible but everyone who saw it believed it to be a variation of the word "Jews", the only point of difference being the exact spelling.

That's the evidence we are faced with Pierre. To claim it was another word entirely is to make a claim without any supporting evidence.

All versions, at least phonetically, spelled Jews, all recorded versions were of a word that was pronounced Jews.

Sorry if this a question with an obvious answer.

out of interest how long after the message was erased did its contents become public?
Was it many years after when investigators and authors were allowed access to files, or at a time closer to the murders?
