During a 3 and 1/2 year period ( from 1888 to 1892 )....Stephenson is found living in 9 different locations.

I previously had thought it was 4 and 1-2 years.

1. In 1888,prior to his first stay in the London Hospital= Brighton,Cricketers Inn.

2. The London Hospital,July 26th,1888 to December 7th,1888.

3. December 7th,1888....he moves to 29 Castle Street.

4. London Cottage Mission,East London

5. The London Hospital,May 13th,1889

6. With Mabel Collins in Southsea after Stephenson is released the second time from the London Hospital

7. Due to an arrangement made by Vittoria Cremers, RDS lives in the same dwelling she does in London in 1890.

8. Baker Street,London....back room of the Pompadour Cosmetic Company.

9. After the breakup of the trio of Collins/Cremers/Stephenson, he moved to an unknown,to date,location.

In addition to all of this, there is the fact that Stephenson did NOT live with Collins,(according to Kim Farnell's book on Mabel Collins,Mystical Vampire) but lived near Collins in that location when Cremers reunited with Collins in 1890.

Was Collins' infatuation with Stephenson a purely intellectual one?

More to come....
