In mid-2009 I was on a business trip to the North Carolina area. In the Houston airport, I found a bookstore there in the gate area and began looking at a few books. Simon Singh’s 1999 book The Code Book caught my eye. I picked it up and began to look at the back cover. Good subject to read on a plane I was thinking. Read some of it on the way there and read most of the rest on the way back. Just could not make it past the part of the Beale Papers. I began to work the ciphers on a napkin that came with my coffee and that was the start of it all.
In about Nov 2014 I cracked the code on the first cipher called number 1. As time passes I have posted many times what I have done, only to be told that there is no possible way to do what I say I have done. I have posted some of what I have found in the decoded ciphers so just in case some other person decodes them everyone can understand that I was the first to do so. I was working them to a final draft, but time and work have slowed me down a bit and there is no rush to get them done at this time.
In the last few months, I have found a cipher within the ciphers left by Beale. In order to find a cipher inside a cipher, you need to correctly decode the first. And only then you can proceed to the next.
I have been in contact with cryptography experts from all over the US. No one seems to understand that the cipher is not a hoax. Currently, looking to publish some decoding I have done.
