Semi Weekly Age
Coschocton, Ohio, U.S.A.
23 October 1888

We publish on our third page a complete history of the Whitechapel horror, a sensation that has kept London, England in an uproar for two months and more. It is one of the most horrible chapters of crime the Nineteenth Century has seen. To cap the horror, a box has recently been sent to one of the detectives containing a kidney of one of the murdered women. The kidney had been fried, and the ghoul stated that he had eaten half and recommended the other half to the officer as being good.

(The article referred to is "The British Ghoul" published in many newspapers at the time.)
