Its worth pointing out these are the typed up notes which Ann tidied up for him. The original handwritten notes are not avaialble. Nor likely to be.

The way i see it you have the following situation:


A) Everything Barrett says is true and Tony Dev gave him the diary just before he died in 1991. Barrett begins his research.


B) Barrett knows Diary was taken from battlecrease in 1992 and thus alters his research notes to provide himself with Tony alibi.


C) He did indeed start researching in 1991 but for a very different reason, he wanted to fake a diary.


D) He faked the diary and mocks up a flimsy research notes which point to sections of the diary being true.


If you accept that Barrett faked the diary then you have to accept that the phone call made to the publisher on the same day as work was carried out on Battlecrease is just a bizarre coincidence.


At the same time you also have to weigh up why 10 days after asking the publisher if they were interested in the diary of jack the Ripper, he goes looking for a victorian diary with "at least 20 blank pages". He then shows up at the publisher 3 weeks later.

I don't believe for a moment that Barrett composed a word of the diary text though. I suppose his poste 😁 dating it to 1991 was his way of trying to avoid accusations of theft, or of receiving stolen goods.

Fair enough. 1970s to 1980s, then.

I read through Barrett's notes and am a bit confused about one part. He speaks of pennies and farthings at Annie's feet and that the diary does not mention the pennies because there were no pennies. He does not clarify about the farthings. Does the diary mention them? I have believed there were no farthings left with Annie's body.

Correct, on both counts.

Can i point out a small part of the diary which made me raise an eyebrow.

As a big fan of the Michael Caine movie 1988 i couldnt help but draw comparisons to a couple of similarities.


In the 1988 movie, Abberline holds back information, requesting that "something be kept back from the inquest" relating to the injuries inflicted on one of the victims. As far as we know there is no real evidence this happened in real life , but i thought it curious that the writer of the diary states -


"Oh Mr Abberline, hes a funny little man, he keeps back all that he can"


Also the reference "little man" is quite prominent in the latter part of the movie.


If the diary is a modern day forgery around the 1989-90 mark , could these be influences to the writer ?

The concrete evidence - as opposed to unqualified opinion and online supposition - doesnt agree with you SamF.

I tend to stick with the former in the abscence of a credible alternative.

Anyway, back to the Diary.

In Mike Barretts confession he claims the book was soaked in linseed oil. Im assuming a simple test on the cover would confirm this ? Yes or no ?
