    In your book, you mention not being able to place either Maxwell at 14 Dorset Street in the 1881 or 1891 censuses.....

    Its on page 92
    Terrific book in case you haven't got a copy, folks.
    Oops:-) Red face here - well it was a long time ago and I am getting old, buddy - I must read the book again!!! But interesting that this hoaxer would give the Maxwell address.... and this news article was a week BEFORE the Kelly murder

    I have found 14 Dorset Street in 1881. It was a house of multiple occupancy but not a lodging house. The tenants were overwhelmingly but not exclusively Jewish.
    I havent found the premises in 1891.

    Nice find Chris.
    It's funny how the newspapers automatically assumed threatening letters were hoaxed. They couldn't be certain, but they sure acted that way.

    By the way....who did live at 14 Dorset Street ?
