25 Sept: 1888
Dear Boss

I keep on hearing the police have caught me but they wont fix me just yet. I have laughed when they look so clever and talk about being on the right track. That joke about Leather Apron gave me real fits. I am down on whores and I shant quit ripping them till I do get buckled. Grand work the last job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal. How can they catch me now. I love my work and want to start again. You will soon hear of me with my funny little games. I saved some proper red stuff in a ginger beer bottle over the last job to write with but it went thick like glue and I cant use it. Red ink is fit enough I hope ha.ha. The next job I do I shall clip. The lady's ears off and send to the Police officers just for jolly wouldn't you. Keep this letter back till I do a bit more work then give it out straight. My knife's so nice and sharp I want to get to work right away if I get a chance.

Good luck.

Yours truly

Jack the Ripper

Don't mind me giving the trade name

Jack the Ripper: The Musical?

8/28/05 05:41 pm - delicto - Hi all.

Well... I've got a new livejournal going, and ws just browsing some of the available comms. Both my father I were/are avid Ripperologists. My prefered medium of research is newspapers; I collect Ripper-related cuttings (I buy them on Ebay etc)... I've not much to say really. Here's a tiny clipping I bought recently. So guys, tell me: who dunnit?

Druitt or not?Collapse )

Has anyone read this book?:

(My apologies; I could not find a larger picture of it.)

Aside from containing much information on the murders, it also contains transcripts of every Ripper letter, authentic or not (and mostly not), ever received by the Metropolitan police. I suggest that you check it out!

Here is the worst toy I have ever seen that has dared to be called a Jack the Ripper figurine. I swear, that would have been Jack the Ripper if he had gone Muppets on us.

I wonder who came up with that design concept though.

Stupid Toy

Just awful...

On a slightly different note than my last post..

Forgive me, but I find that adorable.

What on earth? Supposedly, this is a Jack costume. I kid you not. However, I find the following one slightly more appropriate:

(For the record, I do not spend all of my time perusing Halloween costume websites. I just stumbled across these, and really had to post.)
