    No, I didn't know - there's not many people know that.

              I'm half expecting Winslow to appear the following week with a theory about his own death.

                  Hi all,

                  I wrote an article on the Whitechapel Club back in 2000 or 2001 for Ripperologist. It was not accepted for publication because they already had a similar article ready to go, so to this day it hasn't been published. And I'm pretty sure it's the ONLY article ever to be submitted to Rip that they didn't publish. LOL.

                  Yours truly,

                  Tom Wescott

                      Winslow was utilised for his expertise in lunacy and crime issues despite his obviously inane ramblings in regard to JtR and the Ripper letters he received

                      Swanson visited him to investigate the lodger story, 99% of which LFW retracted and stated was a press invention. In later years he repeated the lodger story and added to the tale

                      It is this aspect, in the main, that leads me to believe that Winslow explained to the police (Swanson?) that he was placing certain articles and claims in the press to encourage the real JtR to communicate with him

                        Nemo:

                        Come to think of it, you ought to consider writing an article about Winslow. You know quite a bit about the man.

                          To tell the truth Howard, he's probably the person I would enjoy writing about the most and I have considered it recently

                          Trouble is, it would fill a book rather than an article I think

                          That's just on the Ripper aspect, not including his early history and subjects such as his involvement in the Maybrick case

                          He's definitely one person I would have liked to have met and chatted to about the Ripper

                            Hmmm. A book like "Doctor Forbes Winslow, Defender of the Insane" by Molly Whittington-Egan? (Cappella Archive, 2000) An excellent book.

                            Wolf.

                              Thanks Wolf - I don't have a copy but would like to read it so I'll order one

                              What was the name of the fictional account in which LFW was the Ripper?

                              On CB in the suspect guide it says LFW was briefly suspected of the murders and his movements checked - I'm not sure where that came from

                              Here's an interesting find - a copy of a newspaper from 1895 which reproduces in full the October 1888/1889 letter

                              The first picture is of too bad a quality, but in the second, if you zoom in on the date, it appears to read '89 without alteration
