    Thank you, A.P.
    I learned that Casebook didn't have it available, as it had been for years, so I decided to bring the book back to life.
    If anyone on Casebook wanted to copy and paste what I posted on this thread, they are more than welcome to use it.

    Not a man to dismiss lightly then, How? Old Sam had good pedigree. Good finds, mate.

    I need to take a fresh look at my copy of 'Leather Apron'. It's probably been over a decade.

    Yours truly,

    Tom Wescott

    P.S. LOL to Scott Nelson. But then the book would have been called 'Was Leather Apron From Hull?; or, the Horrors from Hull: A Full Account of Hull and Its Hullish Hull Stuff'

    M.C. might be M.C. Hammer.

    Thanks for the photograph and background on Hudson, How and Nina.
    He reminds me of someone.

    We go the extra mile as you know on JTRForums....

    This is Samuel E. Hudson ( 1851-1918), born in Long Branch, New Jersey....and the compiler of the book you just read.
    He lived on 18th & Chestnut, curiously just 12 blocks from where Tumblety had his digs years before the Whitechapel Murders....and 11 blocks from where I was born.
    Sam had been a journalist, and a respected one to boot according to a 1879 newspaper article in the N.Y. Times, before compiling the Leather Apron book in 1888 at the age of 37.

    The photo comes from a 1909 book Pennsylvania & Its Public Men (Hudson & Joseph)
