  • Barnett's Alibi * Link Needed

    If anyone knows where the reference to Barnett playing whisk until 12:30 AM on the night of the Kelly murder is, please give me a link.

    I looked through Paley and the Ultimate and damned if I can find it. I probably overlooked it.

    jtrslondon.wordpress cites "Eddleston 198" for the quote about Joe playing whist.

    I had never read anything about this till I started lurking around forums. I never questioned one way or another but have never seen it in any news reports of the day or anything like that.

          The game had to be abandoned when it was discovered that one of the Hearts was missing.

                Hello Jerry, Robert. Looks like a couple of Jokers on the thread.


                Cheers.

                    I follow suit on that.


                    BTW, what do Scots do when they want to play cards? They hold a whisht drive.

                      Playing whisk? Did he end up getting beaten?

                        No but the neighbours were beaten out of doors.

                          I suppose Happy Families were out of the question.

                              Of course, we know exactly when Barnett got his cards. It was when he lost his job at Billingsgate.
