Thanks for doing that, How! I was just in the process of transcribing them as Gareth suggested. I tried Imgur as Jerry and Cris suggested but it doesn't always work for me and as Cris also mentions; no telling what will happen with that down the line also...

Never a problem, Debs. Thank you for sharing the material !

Hi Debs

I can't see what happened to her, but there seems nothing to say that she's
not the one in the casual ward, or even THE Mary Kelly.

Good discovery, Debs. We can never have too many Mary Kelleys. Barnett may have "known" Marie Jeanette was spelled the French way but nobody ever seemed to ask how to spell Kelly. Phonetically correct would have been fine.

What would suggest against this being MJK actually may work in favour of that possibility. MJK had a room in August 1888. But then there is the story from Mrs. Carthy about Mary showing up in the middle of the night with a strange man, needing a room. This story seems to be within Mary's Millers Court time. Maybe she spent more than one night away from home.

Interesting, Debs. Thanks for posting this.

This adds flavor to the story of Mary occasionally visiting a friend in the Elephant and Castle District.

Thanks Anna and Jerry. The Elephant and Castle story sprung to my mind too.
I think it's worth noting down Mary Kellys we come across who have a couple of things in common with MJK.
