Or, do you mean long after the fire was lit, more recent than the start of the fire?

The thing about the bonnet is, I feel sure I read that Maria Harvey lent her bonnet to Mary earlier in the evening, yet Harvey didn't seem to make a point of her bonnet being burned. So, perhaps she got it back?
So who's bonnet was it that was burned?

Echo 12 Nov

"When I left the deceased I put my bonnet in her room, and said, "Well, Mary Jane, I won't see you any more this evening. I'll leave my bonnet in your room." The next thing I heard of her was that she was murdered. I also left in the room two dirty shirts, a little boy's jacket, and a black overcoat. I have not seen anything since, except the black overcoat."

Hi.
Again I mention the statement of Mrs Prater, when she met Kelly at the bottom of the passage about 9.pm that evening.
She was wearing a jacket and Bonnet , I do not own such.
The only bonnet logically worn by Kelly, belonged to Mrs Harvey.
It was only in Mary's possession that evening., so Prater could not have mistook the time.
Normally Mary was said not to have worn a bonnet.yet that evening , she wore the one that Harvey left.
Did she ask her if she could borrow it.?
Either for that night, or possibly to wear to the Lord Mayors show the following day?
Did someone promise to take her,?
Did she actually return home and indeed change between the sightings of Prater, and Cox,?
Maybe the person she was hoping to meet , did not turn up, and her clothing was wet, so she returned home to light a fire to dry those garments, before setting out again.
Did she entertain Blotchy. and venture out again, and meet Mr A, who was then dressed for the Lord Mayors day.? not prearranged.
Was Mr A going to call on her, with Fish and potatoes, and get access to her room., and this encounter made it even easier.?
Apparently Mary Kelly.was anxious about meeting the killer, and usually was in company,and she would have had to have felt at ease with this man.
Lots of plausible scenarios .
Regards Richard.
