As stated earlier in this thread and posted on here a few years ago under another pseudonym. Maybe that's where it originated from?

I proposed a theory years ago that the Diary could have been kept under the mattress. Maybrick would have confident in the knowledge that the Diary was safe whilst he was ill and wouldn’t be found in the meantime should he recover. If the worst came to the worst it wouldn’t matter anyway and he would know it was in a place where it would be found. By secreting it under floorboards he would be aware that it was a place where it wouldn’t be found or at least unlikely to have been found.
This theory would support the lineage to Devereaux thru’ the Laundry fencing route as the bedding would have been managed by the lowliest maid etc….

So the idea didn't originate with Mrs Barrett then, Spider?

Thanks for the clarification.

Well the possibility of the scenario came about when I was discussing the provenance of the Diary with a friend a number of years ago. It wasn't a theory we'd heard of previously, but obviously others may have thought the same and I'd not seen it mentioned since until pcdunn just commented.

Regards

Hi Spider,

Then it just shows how easily things get distorted, doesn't it?
