The following letter appeared in the Times on Friday:-
Sir, - May I add to what has already been said on this subject? Yesterday, at 11 a.m., a gentleman was seized and robbed of everything in Hanbury-street. At 5 p.m. an old man of 70 years was attacked and served in the same manner in Chicksand-street. At 10 a.m. to-day, a man ran into a baker’s shop at the corner of Hanbury-street and King Edward-street, and ran off with the till and its contents. All these occurred within 100 yards of each other, and midway between the scenes of the last two horrible murders.
Yours obediently, J. F. S. September 13.
