Hi Keith. Read the message and then feel free to post it here if you so wish, or forward it to David Orsam. There is nothing tawdry about any of it; I'm merely attempting to establish your current position, as we--or at least I--seem to be having trouble communicating. Thanks. I'll be away for a few days. Take care.

There are two facts to this thread. 1. The diary is a modern forgery and 2. Mike Barrett was full of ****.

Well you'd have to be an idiot to believe it was written by Maybrick.

You'd have to be more of an idiot to believe that Mike Barrett had anything to do with writing it

admittedly this is probably a stupid question and its probably been brought up a million times before but...but-

if (big if of course) it did come out of battlecrease and MB got his hands on it, could MB, his wife etc., come up with the lie that they got it through her family because they were afraid if they admitted where they got it they could be accused of theft(or receiving stolen property) and not only lose out on any profit but possibly face legal trouble?

could explain a lot.

Oh of course a published journalist and proven liar couldn't possibly be involved in writing a phony historical diary.
