COMMENTS

For over 100 years this has been a nondecrypted message. Only the second Beale cipher has been solved.

In addition to numbered pages cited in Hoffman's book (with the three ciphers quoted in their entirety on pages 63 - 66), the page before the title page of the 1988 edition gives the first five terms of the first cipher with the teaser "Will Jeff Beale's treasure ever be found?" - Alonso del Arte, Mar 10 2007
