Letter Writing Serial Killers: Jack The Ripper, #2

What better way to celebrate Christmas than another letter considered to be from Jack the Ripper.

The Central News Agency received this (so-called "Saucy Jack") letter postmarked October 1, 1888, in the same handwriting as the September 25 letter:

I wasn't codding dear old Boss when I gave you the tip. youll hear about saucy Jackys work tomorrow double event this time number one squealed a bit couldn't finish straight off. had not time to get ears for police thanks for keeping last letter back till I got to work again.
Jack the Ripper

Police circulated the letters around and placed facsimiles of them outside every police station in case someone recognized the handwriting. Nothing came of this effort except a number of crank letters.
