Penny Illustrated Paper (London)
3 November 1888

A blood red splash at the head of a long, narrow poster is at this moment attracting some attention in town. It is the sensational advertisement if a sensational shilling brochure, called "The Curse upon Mitre square." I have glanced over it in the interests of my readers, and may say that it is a far fetched story by Mr. J.F. Brewer. The pith of it is that the mysterious murder of Kate Eddowes in Mitre square was the outcome of the Curse called down on that spot by a monk's assassination of a woman on the altar steps of Holy Trinity Church (which stood on the same site) three centuries ago, in the reign of King Henry VIII.
