          RIP Polly.

            It's a few minutes past midnight in London right now on Aug 31st. The 132nd anniversary of Nichols' death is upon us. May she rest in peace.

            There are those who think this was the first Ripper murder, but some people think it all began on Aug 7th. Regardless, both Martha and Polly will be remembered.

            I read an old Ripperologist article today, and it spoke of the 1893 edition of Hayden's Dictionary of Dates. The book was used as a reference tool for listing trials, executions, and murder cases. The 1893 edition had a section that was titled "Whitechapel Murders". However, its first listed murder wasn't Nichols, Tabram, or Emma Smith. Instead, it was Harriet Lane. She was murdered in Whitechapel in 1874 and sadly dissected.

            Jeff Bloomfield was the author of the Ripperologist article and he ended his text with an interesting point. He wondered if the Ripper was in London in 1874 and if so, could he have been influenced by Lane's murder in regards to selecting the Whitechapel area for his dismemberment killings of 1888.

                  R.I.P Polly. You are still remembered as mother, wife, sister, daughter, real human being who lived in Victorian London.

                    Indeed, rest in peace Polly, and the other victims who we will also commemorate in the coming weeks. If only they could've known that in terms of recognition and respect, they would in the decades to come, have in death what they surely had precious little of in life.

                    Cheers,
                    Adam.
