Stan,

I was not aware of Callaghan going to Swanson, only of Swanson going to Forbes Winslow after the latter had started boasting to the newspapers. With regard to date changing, it will be remembered that Winslow produced a letter supposedly received from the killer where the date had clearly been altered from 1889 to 1888 [see The Bloody Truth by Melvin Harris] so he may well have altered the 9th to the 7th.

For those of you with Letters From Hell, take a look at the rhyming letter of 8 November 1889 to the Superintendent of Great Scotland Yard. This clearly relates to Bellsmith [whose book also contains large sections of rhyming verse]


David
Bellsmith's book, "contains large sections of rhyming verse?" How does his rhyming verse compare to rhymes in the Maybrick diary? Just curious.

I was going to upload an article from the New York Herald (London edition) which refers, I believe, to the suspect H. Wentworth Bellsmith, but I see the same basic article is available on-line in the South Wales Echo, so if you aren't familiar with it just follow the link below; second column. This was a sort of first ever "Ripper Conference," circa 1889. The 'mechanical engineer' appears to be our old friend Mr. Callahan from the Met files. There is also an interesting attempt to link Bellsmith's alleged accomplice "Dodger" to 'John Cleary' of the Pinchin Street murder.
