    Nice work on straightening the age of Elizabeth Prater out, Debs...very nice.

    I think your suggestion that Mrs. Maxwell confused Prater for Kelly might be right. The only 'problem' is Maxwell's steadfast position that she talked to Kelly. If, however, Maxwell only knew them superficially, then her steadfastedness becomes less important....IMHO.

    In any event, you've knocked another one out of the park !

      Thanks How. I didn't actually mention Maxwell btw, I was actually thinking of Morris Lewis saying he'd seen Kelly in the morning. But sometimes his sighting is used to bolster Maxwell's even though he didn't appear at the inquest and give evidence officially. I just mentioned it for a discussion point. My main interest was in the information that can be gleaned from the poor law records that doesn't show up in other official records.

            The only Maxwell in the issue is the Beatles' song "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" cited by author John Frizzell in his article on "The Ripper's Moniker" on p. 14.

              Very nise article Debs about the life of Elizabeth Prater and your comparison of her to Mary Kelly. An interesting sidelight too, how the Broomers were uprooted cross country by right of settlement.

              Paul, thanks for the review of Richard Patterson's new e-book. I previously discussed with Richard on Casebook and still have some problems with the scenario, but yes I agree, Francis Thompson requires another look.

              And a question - Trevor Bond wrote an article on McCarthy in Ripperologist some time which I read and enjoyed. I can't find the issue #. And wasn't he going to do a follow up article? Did I miss it?

                Roy, we published the Trevor Bond piece on McCarthy a year ago. It was part one. It appears that a part two has yet to appear, as you say.

                  Yes, but there's no picture of Debs to accompany her article.

                    That's not to say you're wrong about Maxwell, though.

                    Yours truly,

                    P.S. Everyone should take a peak at Trevor and Jon's expose as well.

                          I know Trev has been focused a lot on the museum article (Trevor did nearly all the actual legwork, I sit at home trawling social media, newspaper sites and dig into company info) and also a couple of book projects. He also had some trouble with part 2 as he lost a lot of his notes so was attempting to reconstruct.

                          I'll let him know there's an audience eagerly awaiting the conclusion.

                            You are both to be commended on another very thorough investigation of this depressing business.
