Extracts from this document...


Eva Smith's Diary November 1911 I have no money, nothing. I feel terrible. Words can't express how I feel. Words are nothing compared to my feelings at the moment. Any day now, I'm right on the edge and I'm going to jump, taking my own life with me. One other hope I've got left is The Palace Bar again.

I took him home with me, I felt like he wasn't going to demand anything of me this time. We talked for a while and he told me a bit about himself. After we talked, it happened again.
