Times (London)
12 November 1985

On This Day
November 12, 1888

Jack the Ripper is thought to have murdered at least six women in the Whitechapel district of London between August and November 1888. The Times at that period had a relish for crime. A few years previous the then Editor, Delane, had remarked to his deputy, "That was a good murder you had last week." The Ripper murders produced reams of copy; that of Mary Kelly reported on November 10 was accorded about 5,000 words in which no gory detail escaped the writer. In all, six leading articles were devoted to the Ripper.
