Oh, I see.

Ok, then why isn't Catherine Lane under suspicion?
She last saw Stride about 7-8:00 Saturday evening in the lodging house at Flower & Dean St. Just 5-6 hours before Stride was found murdered.
She never went rushing to police to tell them Stride was in the lodging house around 7:30 Saturday night - thats damn suspicious!

Then there's that deceptive Elizabeth Tanner, she saw Stride in the Queens Head pub about 6:30 Sat. evening, but she never went running to police to admit she was with Stride ONLY 6.5 hours before the murder.
Why didn't she go, you would have, right?
Gareth would have been off like a shot. Which only means one thing, Tanner had something to hide!!

Sound silly? - actually I'd say it sounds stupid.
But then again, its not my argument.

This tangential exchange does not involve Maurice Lewis, the point of the thread. I thought that might concern you.

I hadn't really noticed the heading of the thread, which seems in any case to have morphed into a general discussion about Kelly's time of death. To be honest, we're not likely to get much mileage out of a peripheral figure like Maurice Lewis in any case, so perhaps these tangents are understandable.

Hi Jon,

I was wrong.

The Standard, 10th November 1888, also stated—

"Her little room was shared with a son, eight years of age, and her mother."

Regards,

Simon

So little it was not measurable.
Thats what we used to call drizzle, not "raining hard".
I am not saying it is wrong but wasn't it from an unofficial report?
Could n/a mean no answer rather than not applicable.
Also if Cox did get the day wrong it doesn't look like the night before

Weather for 8 November - Dull cold day; rain at night
Weather for 9 Nov - Wet till 11A.M, then overcast

Dull cold day, nothing about raining during the night. maybe it did rain, maybe not. But at least we know it did rain/drizzle [ one person's interpretation of heavy/rain drizzle can be different from another's ] during the night of 8/9 Nov

Or "not available", perhaps.

Am I the only one who's confused by this?

Hi, Joshua sorry if I wasn't more clear. But it has been suggested that Mary Cox got her days wrong and she really saw Mary Kelly the night before IE 7/8 Nov. But she says in her inquest testimony - Deceased was still singing at one o'clock when I returned. I remained in the room for a minute to warm my hands as it was raining,
if it was raining during the night of 7/8 Nov the forecast would read -Rain at night, Dull cold day; not vice versa But we know it rained on the 8/9 nov at night, as the forecast points out - Wet till 11A.M, then overcast.

I'm not so sure, Darryl. What it's saying is, "The day was dull and cold, and it rained at night", which makes perfect sense to me, logically and sequentially. On the next day, "It rained in the morning until 11AM, and the rest of the day was overcast".

Putting the two statements together, it seems that it rained frequently, if not constantly, during the night of the 8th and the morning of the 9th.
