            Wow thanks SPE

            I've been waiting to see that for ages

            I was thinking of trying to order a copy so your post is very much appreciated

              Thanks very much for sharing that SPE. Very nice of you to do so.

              You were the one who transcribed that originally, weren't you ?

              I didn't think that the handwriting was as orderly as it appears on those pages.

                I'll be going through the "B" section tonight.

                Read more of it last night...its very hard to put down once you start.
                At the end of many entries, the authors offered links to related material on the entry...and before I forget, depictions of the entries from contemporary sketches, some you probably will never see elsewhere.

                  Yes, I believe I was, that was way back when I was writing Letters From Hell.

                    Those scans confirm that the sequence of pages as transcribed in Letters from Hell is correct and Terry Lynch in the "Whitechapel Murders" has them in the wrong order

                    On the third page you can see the number 213 from the other side of the page which is the last page of 4

                    I'll try to transcribe them to see if anything becomes clearer on a few of the more illegible words
