(Original Polish)


Ohydny morderca. Sprawca ohydnych morderstw w Londynie, o których przed kilku dniami wspominalismy, zostal nareszcie zaaresztowany. Jest to niejaki Fitz Gerald, rodem z Ameryki, który juz przyznal sie do spelnionych przestepstw. Morderca utrzymuje, ze dzialal w celach... anatomicznych, do czego, jak to przyznali lekarze londynscy ma nadzwyczaj wprawna reke. Surowa kara nie minie mordercy...

(English Translation)


A horrible killer. The perpetrator of the abominable crimes in London, of whom we wrote several days since, was at last arrested. He's name is Fitz Gerald, he comes from America and has confessed his guilt. The killer performed his work with anatomical accuracy, a skill in which, the London physicians say, he has an unusual ability. He shall not escape strict punishment.
