I shall be in Walthamstow to kill a podgy woman. Yours faithfully, – JACK THE RIPPER.”

From CaseBook.Org:-

“Walthamstow and Leyton Guardian Saturday, 21 March 1891. A “JACK THE RIPPER” THREATENS WALTHAMSTOW. DISCOVERY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY DOCUMENT.”

“On Wednesday an extraordinary document, and one to which too much importance must not be attached, as it is more than likely that it was the work of some stupid person with peculiar notions of humour, was found outside the “Coach and Horses” public house, St. James-street. The document which, we are informed, is now in the possession of the police, was in these words:- “D— you! my dear ladies and gentlemen. I shall be in Walthamstow to kill a podgy woman. Yours faithfully, – JACK THE RIPPER.”
