The opinions expressed in articles and letters are those of the individual authors and are not necessarily shared by the editors.

On the cover: The front is a detail from "Ludgate Hill, Looking from Fleet Street - The Newspaper Row of London" which ran in an 1897 issue of Collier's Weekly. The full image can be seen on the cover of Alan Sharp's forthcoming London Correspondence: Jack the Ripper and the Irish Press. The first pages of two of the Norman Hastings news articles are on the back cover. The background for both sides is a November 10, 1888, report in the Times about Mary Jane Kelly's death.
