New York Times
24 October 1897

In an article about Joseph Vacher:

In connection with this subject, I have been informed on perfectly trustworthy authority that the perpetrator of the Whitechapel murders is known to the police, having been finally identified with a certain lunatic, who is now confined in a madhouse in Scotland. The murderer is an Oxford graduate, and made a certain reputation some ten years ago as a minor poet. He bears a distinguished name, which has been repeated to me, and is famous in Scottish history in connection with a young woman who saved a King's life in a heroic way. The "Ripper" had a wife who was descended from a very famous English Admiral. His latest delusion is that he is the grandson of Napoleon the Great.
