letters from hell. dg.

here is a copy of the original letter sent to scotland yard that contained the kidney.
it has aged obviously so when i recreate it it will have to look as if it has been done in the art few days.
a bad speller, the letter reads;

‘from hell
mr lusk
sor,
i send you half the kidne i took from one women, preserved it for you tother pice i friend and ate it was very nise i may send you the bloody knife that took it out if only you wait a whil longer.
ripper,
catch me when you can mr lushk’



scans below of my pen and ink attempt at recreating the text from the letter.
i’ve used pen and ink to do this which did require some effort to acquire and old fashioned ink pot and nibs.
