I don’t know if you fellows are sleeping or what — but– I think it is time you got wakened up a little you should apply to Jim dunn he is so brave a cop that — he will actually go up to the news boys and say come what — are you fellows standing loafing here but if he meets a man as big as him self why it is all right and as for the murderes of Lizzy Borden and Bertha Manchester you wont find in Fall river

Thank you for sharing this! It just tickles me. I've been a Lizzie Borden "fan" almost as long as I've been fascinated by the Ripper, and this bit of crossover is delicious. Especially with added cat appeal! Heh. Dear lord, it's almost as if the writer had some idea that one day there would be this thing called the Internet, where people would take great pleasure in discussing bloody murder and moggies.

Glad you liked it, Lene...

There's a photo or two of the interior of Borden House in this link.

Ha! The photo of you in repose on the infamous sofa greatly amused me. My hubby isn't a whackity-whack nut the way I am, but I know him well enough to know he would have wanted to do exactly as you did. Heh. Luckily, both of you are nice guys, not cold-hearted bastards like Borden. I think your noggins would be safe napping there.

That thread looks very interesting, gonna go back to it now...

I'm reading a book on the Borden case at the moment actually, so this is indeed very interesting. Marshal Hilliard features prominently.

Cheers,
Adam.
