First off, I wanted to ask (if anyone knows) if that is indeed a euphemism for m/m oral sex. I'm in the process of reading "The Jack the Ripper Whitechapel Murders" by Andy and Sue Parlour and Kevin O'Donnell and, as the bibliography isn't specific, I'm wondering if certain poems quoted in the book are in either of JK's published volumes. In particular, the "sucking peppermints" poem and the poem referencing Oscar Browning ("When I had firmly answered, "No"...)
I'd like to see the complete copy of both poems. I was also wondering if letters between Eddy and JK still exist and are available to the public, as well as letters written by other members of the Stephen family.
This is a very interesting book which only leaves me wanting to know more.
