The Whitechapel Murders Papers
Letters relating to the Jack the Ripper Murders, held at the Corporation of London Record Office.
This fascinating and unique collection of documents comprises the record of the inquest held in 1888 by the Coroner the City of London on Catherine Eddowes, one of the victims of Jack The Ripper, and also a collection of documents mainly dated circa 1888 – 1889. These letters are primarily written by members of the public to the City of London Police at the time of the murders in the East End. Occasionally letters of acknowledgement are to be found. Some letters also enclose other items such as news cuttings and visiting cards, and a note of these is included. For students of all aspects of social history.
