Want to know what I think? I think our leader.. letter writer purposefully made the other 2 letters complete gibberish and made the first decipherable to keep the illusion of keeping his end of the bargain.

Here is a website with the code and the story of buried treasure buried somewheres in the mountains of Bedford County, Va. The code is supposed to give the precise location of buried gold, silver, and jewels,at any rate it is an interesting read. I myself have spent many hours trying to decipher it. Good Luck!

looks like a hoax to me. Maybe there's a new shopping centre opening up at the location coded, once someone deciphers it, 'secretly' tells people, and the word of the location gets round. Could be a very good marketing idea actually!!! Each friend tells 20 of a certain location!

goose, without going to the link you supplied
(and therefore corrupting my memory)...i would point
out that in grade school, we learned of this Beale Chipher, and the treasure that was hidden., somewhere
i believe the cipher #1 was deciphered, which detailed the treasure trove..(was based on the 11th? word of the constitution?)
since then certain events same to pass:
* SS Central America, with gold & silver est +1bil $ on board was sunk off N.Carolina coast, later found...
(i suspect this was the treasure of Beale Cypher)
** The 2nd cypher (never solved) giving the location as
in Virginia....doesn't necessarily mean the State of Virginia, there are other Virginias....like in the Title:
...'Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus'.
Proposal, goose, since your invested time in this-->
would you be willing to share expenses if an expedition
is launched, upon reviewing my theory as to another possible location of Beale Treasure Trove??...& set up a LLC/LLP[u2u]

Well a little feed back of what you think would be appreciated, some say its a hoax but its not been proven to be thus far, my husband swears its a hoax that the guy made it all up, at any rate anyone else worked on it? You got to keep in mind that in those days books were not as readily available as they are today and that most homes had very few books in them.

I did an engine search on Beale, and the site below claims that the supposed treasure has been found.
I think that you have been watching too much of the Simpsons lately.
