Nice one Robert.
Interesting how the robbery appears to have been committed at both Aldgate High Street and Mitre Square. Same post office?
Ah! Aldgate High Street and Mitre Square, therein lay the solution.
A quick walk.
I would have thought those 120 fivepenny postage stamps are now worth about 50,000.
Perhaps one of 'em was licked by Sickert?

AP, I have in my possession one of the actual stamps that the insane philatelist Sickert steamed off of an envelope with the help of Mary Kelly's kettle.

Yours for 50,000 pounds.

50,000, Robert?
I shall pay you the same as I paid Cornball.
Six million dollars, and then steam away.
Just mind you don't melt the kettle in the fire, for generations might come behind you and wonder why.
