Arthur Henry Mason

Mentioned in a Scotland Yard file which is now missing, dated 18 December 1888. Mason's strange behaviour at the White Hart public house Hampton Wick, had caused two men, John Hemmings and William Schuber, to become suspicious of him. They thought his description matched that of the Ripper in the newspapers. Mason lived at Portland Road, Spring Grove, Kingston, and was employed as a compositor at Kelly and Co, Kingston. He was described as 32 years of age, 5ft 9"tall, fresh complexion with a thin face. He was interviewed by the police and his statement was proved to be correct.
