7 October 1888

(Translation)

London, 6 October.
Although the perpetrator of the murders committed in Whitechapel remains unpunished, his horrible work has been the means of attracting general attention to the complete ineptitude of the police and the lesson learned by them and the Government, it could be said, is that perhaps it is worth the sacrifice of these lives immolated by the mysterious assassin.

The interval between the first four murders perpetrated in Whitechapel, and an equally horrible tragedy which occurred near Newcastle on Tyne, gave reason to believe that the monster had fled from London; but the double murder committed at dawn last Sunday caused so much fear, anger and outrage, as perhaps had no other event ever occasioned.

The women who walk the streets at night carry whistles to summon help in case of an attack, and they nearly always go in pairs, whereby they believe themselves safe from any attack.
