Jack Not in Bermuda

Jack Not in Bermuda

Post by Karen on Sun 6 Feb 2011 - 20:08


Nobody knows whether there is such a person as "Jack the Ripper" - whether he is not as utterly fictitious a personage as Mrs. Gamp's "Mrs. Harris," and yet this possible invention of an anonymous writer fills the popular imagination like a nightmare. A correspondent, one of our regular readers in Bermuda, Shakespeare's "still-vex'd Bermoothas," writes to contradict a statement he had seen in Lloyd's with reference to the mysterious murderer. He is sure that "Jack the Ripper" is not in Bermuda. Further, he observes, "I feel certain any Englishman that knows Bermuda will agree with me in this, that we have only one entrance to the island, and if "Jack the Ripper" ever put his foot in this country it would be utterly impossible for him to escape." "Jack the Ripper" has, moreover, assisted ecclesiastical effort. A mysterious lady in the diocese of Bangor, after having appealed to and obtained from the public funds for a home for Whitechapel women, has disappeared, and the Bishop has intimated his intention of applying the funds, which through her instrumentality were placed in his hands, to some useful Church purpose. The name has a weird suggestiveness about it, which adds to the impression of horror made on the world by the unutterably loathsome fiend of the Whitechapel murders. "Leather Apron" proved to be a respectable person, and "Jack the Ripper" may be a harmless lunatic. Till we know the real truth, the myth about the imaginary Jack will grow and have results sometimes painful and sometimes ludicrous.
