Reginald Saunderson, charged with the murder on November 26th. of the woman Dawes, in Kensington Road, was arraigned today. He is a tall, dark, well built youth of gentlemanly appearance. He seemed extremely depressed. A letter which the police received from Dublin, giving the details of how the girl was murdered, was read. It was signed "Jack the Ripper."
