I am one of the very few--possibly only--people who think the first J is Julie Blatberg, who may or may not have taken the photos in TUA. If she and Lemony met at the Punctilio before she joined VFD and met the others, that would explain the comment, and Jacques says in his letter to Lemony that "O is more dastardly than we could have imagined". which seems like a very strange comment if he were in the wooden building Olaf threatened to burn down. Forcing someone to flee their current location feels like it goes hand in hand with saying you'll keep a match/lighter at the ready if they don't follow your demands, and at that point Lemony certainly doesn't need help imagining O's dastardliness. However if Jacques were part of the Queequeg, as he is when he's writing the letter (he says he's feet under water), that statement's a bit easier to believe from a personal perspective.
