          I like the earlier articles about the exhibition and waxworks Howard

          Note the butcher was carrying multiple knives upon his person - a regular practice no doubt

                    April 1889

                    In early April of 1889, a book appeared, written by Stuart Cumberland which touched on the murders of 1888.

                    I'm not sure, maybe Chris Scott or Mike or Nemo know...whether this is the first book which suggests a black magic element within the Case...

                        I might be wrong about the next one, since I don't know all the names of the royalty of Teck.

                        In the new A to Z, on page 17, we find mention of a possible blackmail attempt made against Prince Albert Victor. Patricia Cornwell owns the letters now...and without getting long winded, because this might be the wrong woman....

                        I'm surprised to see how much they made out of this woman's weight.

                          This is somewhat surprising.
                          In America, beginning in or around 1889, we can find numerous horses and dogs named "Jack The Ripper" in a plethora of newspapers.

                          Up until right now, I had never seen a British paper mentioning a British show animal named "Jack The Ripper".

                            Looks like the Leicester people spoke too soon( see third post previous to this one). Same day as this one....

                                You may ask yourself whether the press in Britain, as in America and elsewhere, were the initial sources for the comparisons to the Ripper or whether the local police were.
                                Perhaps a little of both. In any event, this is one of the first in a string of comparison murders in 1889.
                                Even though it involved a male and a youth at that, this terrible murder along with many others would be compared to those in the Fall of 1889.
                                You may also wonder whether the Ripper actually did influence those who committed murders of this nature. Not all were similar ( mutilation), but a good number were.
                                For the record, I think he did.
