Individuals are mentioned who have no known links with the Whitechapel murders – Polly Wright was one; Luisa Whitring another; Mary Bateman a third. Some have odd political references. On 3 November an untidy hand scrawled a resolution passed by the council of midnight wanderers of Belfast, offering ‘hearty fraternal congratulations to “Jack the Ripper” on the grand success he has recently scored’.
