The Ripper's Warning

London, June 29.
The vigilance committee in Whitechapel has been reawakened to activity by an undoubted warning from Jack the Ripper. A letter identical in style and writing with previous missives from jack the Ripper has been received by the chairman of vigilants in which Jack announces he is about to perform another operation and that if the chairman of the vigilants attempts to track him we will knife them to the heart. It is the duty of the police, he says, to catch him. He adds that he has been nearly caught twice, but that he will never be taken alive.
