I like a good mystery as most people do. This Beale Treasure thing is interesting. From what I have read, perhaps to much thought is being put into it since one can do most anything with numbers as I have seen on this forum. Many argue Thomas Beale did not exist. I found where he clearly and without question, exist. Since I am a caver of 46 years, this cave idea intrigues me. If anyone has any idea about a cave and this cipher, I would like to hear it. I am looking for perhaps mineral description and karst or physical features.
