Jack the Ripper

The person calling himself "Captain J R Middlemiss" claimed yesterday that he had received a communication through the mail, signed "Jack the Ripper." From a gentleman to whom the person Middlemiss exhibited the alleged threatening document, we learn that it was headed "No. 7" and contained a representation of a skull and crossbones.
