    I just write to say you will be glad to know that I am settled in my new place, and going all right up to now. My people went out yesterday, and have not returned, so I am in charge. It is a grand place inside, with trees and gardens back and front. All has been newly done up. They are teetotallers, and very religious, so I ought to get on. They are very nice people, and I have not much work to do. I hope you are all right and the boy has work. So goodbye now for the present. Yours truly, 'Polly' answer soon please, and let me know how you are.30

Robert Paul travelled through Buck's Row on his way to work at Corbett's Crt.62

Cross pointed out the body to him. "Come and look over here. There's a woman lying on the pavement."63

Polly was lying on her back with her skirts lifted almost to her stomach.64

Cross felt her hands - cold. "I believe she's dead."65

Paul felt her hands and face - cold. As he pulled her clothes down, he touched her breast and thought he felt movement. "I think she's breathing, but very little if she is." Cross then asked Paul to help him adjust the body, but Paul refused.66

Cross and Paul left, intending to notify the first constable they came upon.67

FRI, AUG 31, 1888

PC Neil then examined the ground.73

FRI, AUG 31, 1888

At the corner of Hanbury St and Baker's Row, Cross and Paul informed Police Constable Jonas Mizen (55H) of the body. "You are wanted in Baker's Row by a policeman," said Cross in passing. "A woman is lying there. She looks to me to be either dead or drunk, but for my part I think she is dead." After further clarification, PC Mizen replied, "All right," and then left for Buck's Row.74

FRI, AUG 31, 1888
(exact time unknown)


PC Mizen arrived at Brown's Stable Yard, and PC Neil sent him immediately for an ambulance and reinforcements from the Bethnal Green Police Station and then searched the area for clues.75

PC Thain and PC Neil placed the body in the ambulance, noticing that the underside of her clothes were sodden with blood. They also noticed that some blood, about 6" in diameter, had congealed underneath the body. Some of the blood had flowed into a near-by gutter.86

Mulshaw was told of the body by another man who passed by:
    "Watchman, old man, I believe somebody is murdered down the street." Mulshaw then immediately went to Buck's Row.87
PC Neil, Sgt Kerby, and H-Div officer took the body to the Workhouse Infirmary's mortuary shed, Eagle Plc, Old Montague St (a cul-de-sac which ended in the green doors of the mortuary).88
