The Beale Ciphers of Thomas J. Beale
Sam text me last night asking if I've ever heard of the Beale Ciphers. I had not, but I just looked them up.
Also interesting of the 3 ciphertexts only the 2nd one was solved and it was solved by using the Declaration of Independence.
Declaration of Independence=221(reverse)
Thomas J. Beale gave Robert Morriss the ciphertexts.
Lynchburg Innkeeper=90(rev red)
Robert Morriss=90(rev red)
Thomas J. Beale might have really been James B. Ward who was a a Freemason says Joe Nickell?
James B Ward=33, 42, 96
Joe Nickell=42, 96
Robert Morriss didn't open the box for 23 years. Then showed a friend who tried to solve it for 23 years of his life?
