Newfoundland stamps were issued on 1910 to commemorate the 300th Anniversary of the Colonization of Newfounland. One of the stamps of the "GUY TERCENTENARY" series depicts LORD BACON and proclaims him as : THE GUIDING SPIRIT IN COLONIZATION SCHEME BUT THAT'S NOT ALL ! 66 is the simple cipher of FRA. BACONI. 6*6 = 36 - = T = 19 and .-. = R = 17 19 + 17 = 36 THE GUIDING SPIRIT IN COLONIZATION SCHEME = 36 Letters Perhaps a reference to the 36 "Invisible Ones" ? What do you think ? Is really the inverted "Z" of COLONIZATION an error, or is it a clue (knowing that it is the 53rd letter by counting from the N of Newfounland) ?
