A letter from Jack the Ripper (the original spelling and grammatical errors are here preserved):
I am down on whores and I shant quit ripping them til I do get buckled. Grand work the last job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal. How can they catch me now. I love my work and want to start again. You will soon hear of me with my funny little games. I saved some of the proper red stuff in a ginger beer bottle over the last job the write with but it went thick like glue and I cant use it. Red ink is fit enough I hope ha ha. The next job I do I shall clip the ladys ears off and send to the police officers just for jolly wouldn’t you. Keep this letter back till I do a bit more work, then give it out straight, My knife’s so nice and sharp I want to get to work right away if I get a chance. Good Luck. Yours truly
Jack the RIpper
Dont mind me giving the trade name.”

The last person publicly guillotined in France, Eugene Weidmann was born at Frankfurt-am-Main in Germany on 5 February 1908. A career criminal, he led a gang of teenage thieves before moving to Paris and progressing to more serious crimes, including six murders. He stole cars, and while on test drives, would shoot the owners in the back of the neck. He also strangled one victim. He was arrested on 8 December 1937 after a shoot-out at his house in St Cloud. When asked if he had any remorse for his victims he replied, “Remorse, what for? I didn’t even know them.” He confessed to police that he and his confederates had planned to kidnap wealthy people and demand high ransoms. At 4.50 a.m. on 17 June 1939 Weidmann was beheaded in Rue Georges Clemenceau, Versailles. The day before every vantage point overlooking the guillotine site was rented out at fantastic prices. From his cell Weidmann could hear the hammering of his guillotine being erected and the laughter of the revellers in cafes, waiting for the entertainment to begin.
Due to delays and miscalculations the decapitation took place in daylight rather than the break of dawn, which allowed photographers to take clear pictures. Weidmann was allowed a few puffs on a cigar and a mouthful of rum in his cell. The bascule, or see-saw plank to which the victim is strapped then tipped and loaded under the blade, had been badly adjusted and it took three attempts to get Weidmann’s neck into the crescent shaped head-holder correctly. Ultimately the assistant executioner had to pull Weidmann forward by his hair and ears. As the blade finally dropped it was accompanied by the eerie whistling sound that is heard at beheadings. The photographs so shocked the public that, a week later, a statute was passed that all executions henceforth would be carried out in private.
