James Maybrick It should really be called the Maybrick Dairy; where else would you expect to find a cash cow being milked?

Hi Ricky,

Apologies to everyone if this has already been addressed, but Mike must have telephoned his request for a Victorian diary with blank pages very shortly - just a day or two [not 10 days] - after telephoning literary agent Doreen Montgomery [not the publisher] to ask if she was interested in the diary of Jack the Ripper.

Love,

Can only imagine what it would have done to the diary.....

Christ, Mr. P! You might just have saved our house going up in flames. I had been storing hubby's linseed oil [for his cricket bats] under the kitchen sink in the unit right next to the dishwasher!

I have now moved it somewhere a lot safer.

Love,

On its own it's perfectly safe is stored correctly. It's what happens when it is applied to certain materials in heavy amounts that can cause problems

Mr P,

I seriously doubt it was really "soaked", if so it would be very obvious.
However the term is very subjective is it not?

Just more imprecise information, however if it really was soaked in Linseed it should be detectable.

There are different grades of linseed oil. That used by artists is lighter in nature and not thick. I do not see the purpose in using linseed oil as described below. Used as described I would be concerned about a sticky, discoloring residue.

Hi Steve

Im not really taking Barretts claim seriously at all! A naked eye could tell if it had been "soaked" irrespective of how one defines it....!
