This chapter asserted that some or all of the Ripper correspondence was in fact written by the killer(s). Handwriting analysis of some of the Ripper correspondence items documented the legitimacy of some of the Ripper letters. The Dutton microphotographs were introduced in an attempt to authenticate some of the letters. Expert opinions that some of the Ripper letters were genuine were also considered.
