Michael, certainly CJ would not have handed over any note until the ransom money was turned over. That's a given.

Remember though that CJ's ransom note number eight, (number nine if you include the nursery note) told Condon there would be a wait of "8 houers" after the ransom was paid before further directions regarding the location of the baby would be forthcoming. Therefore, CJ would not have felt obliged to provide anything more than some kind of bogus followup direction after his impending meeting with Condon at St. Raymond's. It was only at the latter's insistence that CJ must provide a "receipt," that CJ capitulated to physically providing the required note then and there.

It would seem therefore that CJ again has adapted very quickly to comply and come up with the note. Sound like anyone we know?

    Hauptmann's handwriting is a combination of English and German handwriting styles. You can think of it as a hybrid form of cursive writing. When a person learns to read and write in a foreign... more

          Michael, plans change when their weaknesses are realized, and within the planner's buildup to the ransom exchange, this is what appears to have happened. CJ was a very shrewd negotiator. Ransom note... more

            Joe, in the fifth ransom note, reverse side, we have the first mention of the 8 hour waiting period, "after 8 houers we have the money received we will notify you where to find the baby." This was... more

              Michael, would it be possible to determine if the Boad Nelly note was written on the same type of paper as the rest of the ransom notes?

                Yes. By using the same method of comparison used to analyze the Nursery note and the March 4 ransom note.

                  Do you know if the Boad Nelly note was written on the same writing paper (carried by F.W. Woolworth's) as the rest of the notes? When all is said and done, it seems feasible that Hauptmann could have ... more

                    I haven't compared the Boad Nelly note the to directional note left near the Bergen Greenhouse. This comparison would provide a quick answer. They did find the same kind of stationery in Hauptmann's... more

                      Michael, I asked Mark Falzini my question. To his knowledge, the only two ransom notes compared with each other for linen stock, were the nursery note and ransom note one, which of course were... more
