PUBLIC LEDGER, Philadelphia, Oct. 12, 1888 The ftpg. has a one paragraph report (see photo) headed: "The Whitechapel Murders--A Charge Against the Chief of Police" tells of a chilling note by Jack the Ripper: "I have murdered 4 & will murder 16 more before I surrender myself to the police" written on a shutter, which was erased by the Chief of Police before authorities could photograph it. Some edge wear, mostly nice.
