The monthly meeting of the Jewish Board of Guardians was held on Monday at the offices of the Board, 13, Devonshire Square. There were present: Mr. B. L. Cohen, President, in the chair, Messrs. L. L. Alexander, J. S. Ballin, C. S. Davis, D. Benjamin, I. M. Boekbinder, Barrow Emanuel, Lewis Emanuel, L. Jacob, H. G. Lousada, A. Rosenfeld, Charles Samuel, H. S. Samuel, D. F. Schloss, S. Schloss, I. Seligman, S. Simons, B. I. van Staveren.

Prior to the commencement of the business on the Agenda, the President informed the Board that when the announcement was made public of the intended house to house visit in the Whitechapel district in the search for the perpetrator of the murders, he, after consultation with Mr. Lionel Alexander, the Hon. Secretary, had written to the Chief Commissioner of Police, offering to place at the disposal of the authorities the machinery and staff of the Board. The reply of Sir Charles Warren was of a private character, but its effect was to thank the Board for its offer, which he would place before the local authorities. . . .
