JACK THE RIPPER
From T.E.A. Stowell

Sir,

I have at no time associated His Royal Highness the late Duke of Clarence, with the Whitechapel murderer or suggested that the murderer was of Royal blood.

It remains my opinion that he was a scion of a noble family.

The particulars given in The Times of November 4 of the activities of His Highness in no way conflict with my views as to the identity of Jack the Ripper.

Yours faithfully,
a loyalist and a Royalist,
Thomas E.A. Stowell.
