Default Queen Mary and Lord Mayor

Hi,

As you already know I believe that Jack the Ripper planned the murder of Mary Kelly to spoil Lord Mayor´s Day.

I have also stated that I think he posed the dead body the way he did to confirm to the police that he was the murderer (since he was planning to do extensive mutilations on the victim and knew that the police afterwards could have doubts about who the killer was).

http://www.npg.org.uk/collections/se...Queen-of-Scots

I have also told you about a letter I think he wrote in the press, giving the adress to Miller´s Court and the name of the victim: Mary.

In this letter he hints at Lord Tennyson. Lord Tennyson wrote a play called "Queen Mary". Lord Mayor was in it to.

http://archive.org/details/cu31924031321478

The play was performed in London.

Regards Pierre

So not Mary Jane Kelly as you told us before. Just Mary?

He gives the following:

The name Mary
Her room number
Miller´s Court
The date of the murder

He also gave the number of the room above Mary´s.

Do you know the name of Mary´s first cousin?

But this isn't true is it? Because I previously asked you in the other thread if he gave her address in plain English and you said no it was in 'metaphorical language'. Then I asked for clarification and you said it was just your 'interpretation'.

David - you are missing the important information here.

And please reconsider your own hypothesis of a killer writing the actual adress of his next crime to the police.

I´ll get back to you when you have given that some thought.

I have neither formulated nor offered any such hypothesis.

Just to clarify, that is, or was, your hypothesis:

"He wrote a letter to the editor in a paper not signing it “Jack the Ripper” where he gave the exact address to one of the murder sites."

That is from your post dated 18 September 2015 in the 'I think I have found him' thread.

a little bit condescending, isn't it?

Is this address 26 Dorset Street, or 13 Millers Court...because only 1 of them would be accurate. Although Marys room was the original salon in #26, at the time of her death, the room belonged to only Millers Court.
