                    Another Description Of A Sailor

                    We know that researchers have attempted to make a connection between the Ripper and the United States....yet, it occurs to me, as I read the numerous reports of other skeins of murders...and in some cases, as in this following one, another mention of a man who resembled a sailor...that less attention has been paid to a link to Europe, rather than North America.
                    You have to admit that multiple murder skeins were publicized far less frequently before the Ripper and there may have been a good reason for that..one that we may never know.

                      Doppelganger?

                      George Sims, the Uber-Ripper Tragic, read the Leicester story and, according to his 'Dagonet' column in The Referee, he thought the suspected gentleman, one who periodically visited the Continent, was himself!

                      This is his first reference to his long-standing claim, based on a coffee vendor's possible encounter with the real 'Jack' on the morning after the double event', that the writer was the fiend's double.

                      Later, Macnaghten -- his flippant pal -- would confirm the resemblance.

                      Actually the younger, thinner Sims did look like Druitt.
