Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 176 )
The following week , I received seven applications, things appeared to be looking up. But on closer examination, I was once again disappointed.
The majority of them were my own age or older, I wanted a younger man. on perusing their applications and reading between the lines, none of them appeared to have been particularly successful in their chosen career.
I dislike being disrespectful to other members of the profession, but none of them came close to the sort of Junior that I had envisaged, to put it bluntly, these men were all failures. I knew because I was once one of their number.
If things do not improve, I may have to select on of them, but the thought has little appeal to me. I just hope and pray that before long the right man answers my advertisement.
Maybe I have too high an expectation, but I know there are men out there, who like myself, do care about the poor and needy, and seek to improve their lot.
