Letters from Jack the Ripper

Recieved by the Central News Agency on September 27, 1888.

Dear Boss,
I keep on hearing the police have caught me but they wont
fix me just yet. I have laughed when they look so
clever and talk about being on the right track.
That joke about Leather Apron gave me real fits. I am down
on whores and I shant quit ripping them till I do
get buckled. Grand work the last job was. I gave the
lady no time to squeal. How can they catch me now.
I love my work and want to start again. You will
soon hear of me with my funny little games. I saved some
of the proper red stuff in a ginger beer bottle
over the last job to write with but it went
thick like glue and I cant use it. Red ink is fit
enough I hope ha. ha. The next job I do I shall clip the
ladys ears off and send to the police officers just for
jolly wouldn't you. Keep this letter back till I do a
bit more work, then give it out straight. My knife's
so nice and sharp I want to get to work right away if I get a chance. Good Luck.
Yours truly
Jack the Ripper
Dont mind me giving the trade name
PS Wasnt good enough to post this before I got all the red ink off my hands curse it No luck yet. They say I'm a doctor now. ha ha

You though your-self very clever I reckon when you informed the police. But you made a mistake if you
though I dident see you. Now I known you know me and I see your little game, and I mean to finish you
and send your ears to your wife if you show this to the police or help them if you do I will finish you.
It no use your trying to get out of my way. Because I have you when you dont expect it and I keep my
word as you soon see and rip you up. Yours truly Jack the Ripper.
PS You see I know your address
