%e In The Declaration of Independence of the USA, take the first letter of the a(n)-th word to get:

%e I HAVE DEPOSITED IN THE COUNTY OF BEDFORD ABOUT FOUR MILES FROM BUFORDS IN AN EXCAVATION OR VAULT SIX FEET BELOW THE SURFACE OF THE GROUND THE FOLLOWING ARTICLES BELONGING JOINTLY TO THE PARTIES WHOSE NAMES ARE GIVEN IN NUMBER THREE HEREWITH.

%e THE FIRST DEPOSIT CONSISTED OF TEN HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN POUNDS (1014 lbs.) OF GOLD AND THIRTY EIGHT HUNDRED AND TWELVE POUNDS (3812 lbs.) OF SILVER, DEPOSITED NOV. EIGHTEEN NINETEEN.(NOV.1819)

%e THE SECOND WAS MADE DEC. EIGHTEEN TWENTY-ONE (DEC 1821) AND CONSISTED OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND SEVEN POUNDS OF GOLD AND TWELVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY EIGHT OF SILVER; ALSO JEWELS OBTAINED IN ST. LOUIS IN EXCHANGE TO SAVE TRANSPORTATION, AND VALUED AT THIRTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.

%e THE ABOVE IS SECURELY PACKED IN IRON POTS WITH IRON COVERS. THE VAULT IS ROUGHLY LINED WITH STONE, AND THE VESSELS REST ON SOLID STONE, AND ARE COVERED WITH OTHERS.

%e PAPER NUMBER ONE DESCRIBES THE EXACT LOCALITY OF THE VAULT, SO THAT NO DIFFICULTY WILL BE HAD IN FINDING IT.

%Y Cf. A101110, A101112.
