[QUOTE
The only fully detailed version is given by the Daily News:
"I also saw a man and a woman who had no hat on and were the worse for drink pass up the court."

Given that this matches Hutchinson's account, what reason is there to ignore it?[/quote]

Hi Wick, As I poster earlier the Daily news [same article and paragraph], also quotes Sarah as saying - In the doorway of the deceased's house I saw a man in a wideawake hat standing. He was not tall, but a stout-looking man. He was looking up the court as if he was waiting for some one.
As far as i know this is the only newspaper to report seeing wideawake right outside Mary's door looking into the open yard of the court.
Isn't that reason enough to cast doubt on - I also saw a man and a woman who had no hat on and were the worse for drink pass up the court.
Regards Darryl

The Morning Advertiser wrote:
"A young man went along with a young woman."
Whether passing along, going along, coming along or "further on", neither of these mean "entering Miller's Court". If she had really said that, then all the papers would have picked up on it. Yet only one says as much, and that report contained at least one glaring error, as Darryl's post above reminds us.
