Hi Eric,

Francis Bacon-Shakespeare, Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood, UK, US and French Intelligence, et al, (at their highest point all connected?) and the Universal Reformation of the Whole Word. 

This links in with my novel in which the US of today is run by a secret order emanting originally from the Knights Templar and Freemasonry to the present CIA and FBI whose connections still to UK MI5 & 6 still exist . The Bohemian Grove in the US is an annual meeting point for their male members.

"Ancient code of order stand

beneath the souls of lesser grand

secret hold that bound their world

to guard their chance of second hurl.

Dormant want to to those that deem,

that reap the chance to end their beam.

Silent men, women and child,

Forever lost in centuries wild."

Secret Code of Order, Chevaliers de Sangal

"The world is governed by very different people from what is imagined

by those not behuind the scenes." Benjamin Disraeli.

FRANCIS BACON & US INTELLIGENCE

Early in 1929 before the Black Chamber had ceased to exist secret plans were underway to transfer its work to the Signal Corps. The army had decided to centralize its cryptographic and cryptanalytic functions and on 10th May 1929 all responsibility for cryptanalysis transferred to the army under the authority of the Chief Signal Officer Major General George S. Gibbs. In June General Gibbs arranged a meeting to discuss the forming of a new organization. It was attended by three senior Signal Corps officers and the head of the Code and Cipher Compilation Section, William F. Friedman. It was agreed the cryptologic unit should be organised into four sections: Code and Cipher Compilation, Code and Cipher Solution, Intercept and Goniometry (direction finding), and Secret Ink. It was decided that the new unit would be called the Signal Intelligence Service with William F. Friedman its director.322

While waiting for the final details of the new organisation to be worked out, in October 1929 Friedman went to New York to supervise the transfer of the Black Chamber’s records and files to Washington. ‘Then he set about planning his new task. It was to have a lasting effect on him, as he was to admit years later. ‘You may be interested to know,’ Freidman wrote to William Bundy, Henry Stimson’s biographer, in discussing the work of the Black Chamber, ‘that my own feelings on the ethical point at issue are quite ambivalent-and have been for a long time. I have often wondered whether a good portion of my psychic difficulties over the years are not attributable, in part at least, to that ambivalence. Were it not for the fact that what I learned from my work in that segment of the whole field was applied very directly to improvements in our own systems, I am sure the psychic effect would have been much more serious.’1 In his groundbreaking history of the NSA, of which the Signal Intelligence Service was a direct forerunner, James Bamford precisely communicates the exact time, indeed to the very minute, when the Signal Intelligence Service was officially born:                                                                                                                                            
At seventeen minutes past the hour of ten o’clock on the morning of April 24, 1930, the Signal Intelligence Service was born. It was at that moment that the chief signal officer officially received the order from the Secretary of War setting out the duties and responsibilities of the new organization.2

FRANCIS BACON & US INTELLIGENCE

His source for this statement is the virtually unknown work commissioned by the Army Security Agency, a linear evolvement of SIS, and predecessor of the National Security Agency. The once classified 3 volume history of US intelligence privately printed in Washington DC by the Army Security Agency was not known to writers prior to Bamford and has never been on commercial sale. It came too late to be listed by Galland and is not listed by Shulman, nor could I locate it in Peterson’s American Intelligence, 1775-1990 A Bibliographical Guide. The work is not available in any of the leading English public libraries nor can it be readily obtained in public libraries in the US. A copy of this rare work is held by the National Defence University Library at Fort McNair, Washington DC. Its highly distinguished author Professor Theodore W. Richards, America’s first Nobel laureate in chemistry, was the former head of the Secret Ink Subsection of Yardley’s MI-8. Under the heading ‘The Signal Intelligence Service Officially Established’ Richards begins by stating ‘By order of the Secretary of War, The Adjutant General officially notified the Chief Signal Officer of the changes in the War Department policies relating to codes, ciphers, secret inks, radio interception, and goniometry. The text of this letter was substantially that drafted by Major Albright and Mr. Friedman and is so important that it should be quoted in full’.1

The document printed by Professor Richards runs to seven pages and concludes ‘By order of the Secretary of War: /s/ Alfred J. Booth Adjutant General’.2 Beneath the document Professor Richards says ‘While the War Department Signal Intelligence Service was designed to operate under the control of the Chief Signal Officer, general staff supervision of its activities was exercised by the G-2 division of the War Department General Staff.’3 In a footnote to the text giving the order to officially establish the Signal Intelligence Service Professor Richard states that the seven page document is:

                                                                                                                                                                                            
Quoted from the copy on file in the Office of the Director of Communications Research. This bears the stamp of the Office of the Chief Signal Officer dated 1017 hours, 24 April 1930. See File AG 311.5 (4-14-30) Pub.4

                                                                                                                                                                                                        
Most fittingly for a cryptologic organisation the precise time and date selected for its birth was no arbitrary choice. The time of its birth concealed a cipher, a Baconian cipher. There are five letters in the word April and the numbers in the time and date 1+0+1+7+2+4+1+9+3+0=28: 5+28=33 Bacon in simple cipher.

FRANCIS BACON SECRET AUTHOR OF THE SHAKESPEARE WORKS AND US INTELLIGENCE

One of the first tasks Friedman faced in organising his new unit was the recruitment of a small number of staff who possessed the necessary skills and aptitude required for working in such an unusual rarefied field and who were effectively prepared to commit themselves to a lifetime service to the US government. The official account of the origins of the SIS says prospective recruits ‘were given to understand that the Signal Intelligence Service was seeking to establish a permanent corps of trained experts in cryptology and that no one who was not disposed to make this his life work would be engaged. It was recognized that the specialized nature of the work and the fact that work of this kind does not have its counterpart in civilian affairs, would tend to make individual employees more and more dependent for a livelihood upon the continued security of tenure of his position in the War Department.’1

Ideally, Friedman was looking for individuals with a background in mathematics and languages. He chose three names out of the eight provided by the Civil Service Commission: Frank B. Rowlett, Abraham Sinkov and Solomon Kullback. Rowlett had the previous year graduated in science and mathematics from Emory and Henry College in Virginia and at the time was teaching mathematics and chemistry at Rocky High Mount School. On 1st April Rowlett achieved the distinction of being the first to join Friedman at SIS marking the beginning of a lifetime association which would in the years to come crucially shape the future of cryptology in the United States. They were joined a little over a week later by Sinkov a teacher from New York who had graduated in 1927 from City College in New York and who had recently acquired a master’s degree at Columbia. Kullback the third recruit to arrive at the SIS came from a similar background. He received his degree in science from City College in 1927 before moving to Columbia for his master’s degree. Kullback and Sinkov each went on to acquire doctorates in mathematics from George Washington University. A few weeks passed when the three new recruits were joined by John B. Hurt a native American with a very rare expertise in the Japanese language. The number including the secretary reached a total of seven when Friedman appointed Harry Lawrence Clark as an assistant cryptographic clerk. During the next seven peacetime years the number of staff remained more or less constant but with war beginning to loom on the horizon from 1937 the figures began to expand dramatically.1 Come Pearl Harbour the SIS employed 331 personnel in a variety of functions. The numbers continued to grow and in 1942 the SIS moved its operations from Washington to Arlington Hall in Virginia. During the war years it underwent a series of name changes. In 1942 the SIS was variously renamed Signal Intelligence Division, Signal Security Branch, Signal Security Division, Signal Security Service and from July 1943 to September 1945 Signal Security Agency. By the end of the war its numbers had grown to a total of 10,371 with an additional 17,000 Army personnel engaged in other signal intelligence activities.2

The early beginnings of the SIS however were shrouded in obscurity and secrecy, as was the life and achievements of its cipher expert Frank B. Rowlett the man who began his cryptologic life as its very first assistant to William F. Friedman, who in the decades that followed, rose to the very top of the cryptologic establishment serving with the CIA and eventually replacing his mentor Friedman as Special Assistant to the Director of the National Security Agency (NSA). Until recently little was known about Rowlett. This began to change when in 1988 the US government withdrew its objections to the publication of his personal memoir which was afterwards issued by Aegean Park Press entitled The Story of Magic Memoirs of an American Cryptologic Pioneer.

FRANCIS BACON SECRET AUTHOR OF THE SHAKESPEARE WORKS AND US INTELLIGENCE

Its valuable foreword To the Story of Magic by Kahn sets the scene for a man whose important and dramatic role in the grand cryptologic play of life, which had necessarily for the most part remained invisible to all but a secret few, was at last now beginning to emerge from the shadows into the light:      

                                                                                                                                                                                                         FRANK ROWLETT LIVED his life in shadow. His work as a codebreaker was done in deepest secrecy. His exploits remained unknown to all but a few. His great triumph, as the leader of the team that broke the Japanese PURPLE diplomatic cipher machine, was obscured when his boss William F. Friedman, became known as “The Man Who Broke Purple.” His $100,000 Congressional award for cryptographic inventions was barely mentioned in the press. His award of the National Security Medal by President Lyndon Johnson in person was little noted.

Yet Rowlett is one of the key figures of American cryptology. Though he followed in the footsteps of Friedman, his older, pathbreaking mentor and boss, he made great contributions of his own. His PURPLE solution helped Allied troops lodge themselves in Normandy. His cryptographic inventions, particularly the idea of using keying rotors to irregularize the rotation of enciphering and deciphering rotors, rendered high-level American secrets invulnerable. He organized and inspired hundreds of World War II draftees in cracking Japanese army codes. His work saved thousands of lives. His administration put U.S. cryptology on a sound and efficient basis.

But his story has never been publicly told. Now, at last, the U.S. government has withdrawn its objections to the publication of the memoir he set down a decade or two ago, and Aegean Park Press is issuing it.

It is a fundamental contribution to the history of American cryptology. Nothing like it has been written, and nothing like it will be: The other persons involved are all deceased, and the documents in the archives do not record the personalities, the anecdotes, the human reasons behind many decisions, as recounted here.

….For some reason, Rowlett stopped his memoir in medias res. It could not be published truncated thus. With the approval of the author, and on the bases of his oral history interview with National Security Agency historians, though it has been heavily redacted, and of newly available documents, I have sought to round out this work. The author has read and approved my supplement.

In this wonderful book-revelatory and well written-Frank Rowlett has told the story of the morning of American cryptology. It brings the man who lived in shadow into the sunlight. It deserves to be read not only by historians of cryptology, but also by historians of intelligence, of war-and of America.1

FRANCIS BACON SECRET AUTHOR OF THE SHAKESPEARE WORKS AND US INTELLIGENCE

The first page of the foreword is revealing in more ways than one. It will be observed that this page commences with a large capital F commencing the three opening words printed in block capitals [F] 'RANK ROWLETT LIVED’. The large capital F has been deliberately and specially designed to cover two lines similar to the device used by Bacon in his Shakespeare poem The Rape of Lucrece where the first two lines also commence with a large capital F stretching across the first two lines incorporating the capital letters R and B indicating FR[ancis] B[acon]. In the foreword the large capital F has the effect of indenting the first word ‘was’ of the second line thus the letter b of the word ‘but’ falls directly under the large capital F: [F]rancis B[acon]. The first line has 36 ordinary roman letters and 3 words in block capitals: 36-3=33 Bacon in simple cipher and conversely 36+3=39 F. Bacon in simple cipher. Within the large capital F there are a total of 106 letters which minus the 3 words printed in block capitals: 106-3=103 Shakespeare in simple cipher. The first two lines can now be construed as ‘FRANCIS BACON LIVED his life in shadow. His work as a codebreaker was done in deepest secrecy. His exploits including his secret authorship of the Shakespeare works remained unknown to all but a few.’ The second and third lines of the second paragraph reverse the process. Here the first line is indented in the ordinary way to denote a new paragraph. The second and third lines which start in the normal place at the side of the page begin with the word ‘followed and ‘boss’, again providing the initials FB for Francis Bacon. Furthermore, in the first paragraph is the number 100,000 which when the 3 nulls (000) are dropped it leaves 100 Francis Bacon in simple cipher. The first paragraph contains a total of 87 words plus 16 block capital letters (‘RANK ROWLETT LIVED’): 87+16=103 Shakespeare in simple cipher. The concealed message thus reads Francis Bacon is Shakespeare.

It should also be seen that in the opening paragraph the word PURPLE is printed in block capitals and the 5 words “The Man Who Broke Purple” are placed in quotation marks with PURPLE again printed in block capitals in the second paragraph. With RANK ROWLETT LIVED PURPLE, PURPLE (the large F is different in  size to the ordinary block capital letters) produce a total of 28 block capital letters that added to the 5 words in the quotation marks “The Man Who Broke Purple”: 28+5=33 Bacon in simple cipher. In the second paragraph minus the word PURPLE there remains a total of 100 words (all letters signify words and are counted as such): 100 Francis Bacon in simple cipher. The final 3 paragraphs on the page contain a sum total of 160 words: 160-3=157 Fra Rosicrosse in simple cipher. 

The whole page contains 32 lines of printed text headed by the word FOREWORD: 32+1=33 Bacon in simple cipher and likewise the 32 lines of the printed text plus the 1 printed line for the page number (ix): 32+1=33 again Bacon in simple cipher. The text itself comprises a total of 348 words which plus the number 9 expressed in roman numerals (ix): 348+9=357 a triple cipher for Francis Bacon (100)/Francis Bacon (100) Fra Rosicrosse (157) in simple cipher.

She is our muse Athena, and only briefly once did she doff her magical military Helmet of Invisibility: the pre-publication of the new issue of Baconiana arrived, which she single-handedly brought back to life after several years of it being silent and derelict. It took a Woman to re-birth it. 

For a brief while a picture of her appeared there, same as all the other Authors, along with their known-to-the-world "Exoteric" names. I intentionally have forgotten hers, blanked it out of my mind, except that I remember her exoteric 'given' name is S___.

Then, apparently, they-all came to their senses and censored all the Author Info for all the authors.

But she told us already what her true, Spiritual name is: she is A Phoenix. That's all I know about it.

I am sure this has already been shared, but I'll do it again as there is so much to see in the NSA Friedman collection. 🙂

https://www.nsa.gov/Helpful-Links/NSA-FOIA/Declassification-Transparency-Initiatives/Historical-Releases/Friedman-Documents/

In one of its largest and most significant declassification and release of documents to date, the National Security Agency (NSA) released over 52,000 pages of historical material relating to the career of William. F. Friedman.

Has anyone listened to his recordings?

Francis Bacon & Cryptology - FBRT Zoom meeting Saturday 25 May 2024 at 19:30

Principal of the Francis Bacon Research Trust Peter Dawkins is giving what promises to be a fascinating talk on cryptology, intelligencers and the extraordinary 1624 work Cryptomenytices & Cryptographiae with its links to Francis Bacon and the Shakespeare works.

 

All the details can be found below.

 

 
 

e19ae393-0090-4ecc-8069-d819ce653ffd.jpg

 

85e75c49-8dd1-ac8b-7264-30d08a7761a2.jpg

 

Cryptomenytices & Cryptographiae, intelligencers, and Cryptology generally
Saturday 25th May at 7:30pm 

talk on Zoom by Peter Dawkins , giving some background information about Cryptomenytices et Cryptographiae, its author, and the secret society and intelligence networks involved.

The great cipher manual, Cryptomenytices et Cryptographiae, was published in 1624, the year immediately after the 1623 twin Folios, Francis Bacon’s De Dignitate et Augmentis Scientiarum and the Shakespeare First Folio, Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies.

Cryptomenytices provides keys to the cryptology in the 1623 publications, as also in many other publications of that time which were composed by members of the Society of the Golden and Rosy Cross. Indeed, some of the ciphers appear to have been used, suitably adapted and developed, in the last two world wars, and the fundamentals of Francis Bacon’s Biliteral cipher provide the foundation of all computer language we use today.

This talk is additional to the series of four talks originally designed and advertised for this year, and in fact forms part of the The Swan Flight: The Third Heaven event, during which Hitzacker, on the river Elbe in Germany, the place where Cryptomenytices was written, and Lüneburg, where it was published, will be visited.

So, for this reason, this talk will be the second talk of the Rosicrucian Cryptography series this year, and talk 7 of the whole Rosicrucian Mysteries series.

For those who attend the talk, there will be time for questions, answers and insights after the talk.

Cost £15. Please email sarah@fbrt.org.uk for further details if you wish to attend. The fee for the talk can be paid through the donation button on the FBRT website:
https://www.fbrt.org.uk/donations/ 

With all good wishes,
Sarah

US INTELLIGENCE AND BACONIAN-SHAKESPEAREAN CIPHERS AND ANAGRAMS

We have just put up a paper on Academia on the large capital F (for Francis!) used by FB and his Rosicrucian Brotherhood to indicate the disclosure of secret information which was later understood and employed by the Friedmans and Frank B Rowlett both senior members of the National Security Agency (NSA) the most secret arm of US Intelligence.

There seems little doubt that the Friedmanns were given a nice house near the Folger and its facilities and promised awards etc to debunk Mrs Gallup and  the Cartier confirmation. The NSA would appear to be at the heart of the Masonic Brotherhood that rules the US then and today stemming from the original Masonic founders. Frankin, Jefferson nd Washington.

I feel sure the Folger Library with its close links between the Folger family and Bacon is determined to ensure that Bacon is not revealed as the author of the Shakespeare works. Why so is the mystery that really needs unravelling to get at the truth. The Folger stands at the very heart of Masonic Washington and is a powerful organisation certainly with its connections to the NSA able to have the potential to bring pressure on the Friedmans and anyone else who may stumble on, or discover by any means the true authorhship. 

My personal belief is that the Folger believe they act on behalf of Bacon who wanted his name concealed but I also believe there is a greater reason. One of far greater imprtance and potency behind their cover up. If that could be disocoverd perhaps it might reveal a far greater secret in its impact on the human race and the secret to American power.

From the moment you learn to speak you are under the necessity of drinking in and assimilating what perhaps I may be allowed to call a hotch-potch of errors. Nor do these errors derive their strength only from popular usage. They are sanctioned by the institutions of academies, colleges, orders, and even states themselves.

[Francis Bacon, The Refutation of Philosophies; Benjamin Farrington, The Philosophy of Francis Bacon (Liverpool University Press, 1964), p. 108]

…depth of secrecy and concealment of designs, and that manner of action, which affects everything by dark arts and methods (or menees sourdes as the French call them) be both useful and admirable….

That the discretion anciently observed, though by the precedent of many vain persons and deceivers disgraced, of publishing part, and reserving part to a private succession, and of publishing in a manner whereby it shall not be to the capacity nor taste of all, but shall as it were single and adopt his reader, is not to be laid aside, both for the avoiding of abuse in the excluded, and the strengthening of affection in the admitted.

                       [James Spedding, ed., The Works of Francis Bacon, III, p. 248]

For if a man have that penetration of judgement as he can discern what things are to be laid open, and what to be secreted, and what to be shewed at half lights and to whom and when…

   ...There be three degrees of this hiding and veiling of a man’s self.

      For the first of these, Secrecy…mysteries are due to secrecy…Therefore set it down, that an habit of secrecy is both politic and moral.

      For the second, which is Dissimulation; it followeth many times upon secrecy by a necessity; so that he will be secret must be a dissembler in some degree…

      But for the third degree, which is Simulation and false profession; that I hold more culpable, and less politic; except it be in great and rare matters.

                       [James Spedding, ed., The Works of Francis Bacon, VI, pp. 387-89]

 

The all-seeing National Security Agency (NSA), the most secretive arm of US Intelligence has developed into the most complex and comprehensive world-wide signal intelligence operation the world has ever seen. It has taken cipher and codebreaking to almost undreamed levels of supercomputer driven technical dominance and through its BRUSA Agreement (Britain-United States Agreement) to facilitate co-operation between US Intelligence and GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) and UKUSA (United Kingdom and United States of America Agreement) that also includes cooperation in Signals Intelligence (codes and ciphers) between Cananda, Australia and New Zealand, the full extent of its technical mastery over all mediums of communication around the globe, is only truly known to the invisible powers who secretly control and direct its operations.

THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY (NSA) THE MOST SECRETIVE ARM OF US INTELLIGENCE (CODES AND CIPHERS) AND THE PLAQUE AWARDED TO COLONEL FABYAN AND HIS RIVERBANK CIPHER DEPARTMENT WHICH CONTAINS CIPHERS REVEALING FRANCIS BACON, BROTHER OF THE
ROSY CROSS, IS SHAKESPEARE

All this has been achieved in considerably less than a century. When the United States of America found themselves being reluctantly dragged into the First World War it lacked an official cipher bureau necessary to fight modern wars. An ill-prepared government and military intelligence turned for assistance to the philanthropic Colonel George Fabyan who had set up the Riverbank Cipher Department on his Riverbank estate in order to prove via the presence of ciphers in the Shakespeare works, that Francis Bacon was Shakespeare. His Riverbank Cipher Department was headed by William F. Friedman the man who was to become the most famous cryptologist of the twentieth century and whose career as the foremost cryptologist of his time would take him to the very pinnacle of US intelligence and culminate in him being appointed special assistant to the director of NSA, the most secretive intelligence organisation on earth.

In the early dark days leading up to the war and for some time after when the United States finally entered on 6th April 1917, the US military and various other government agencies and departments sent to the Riverbank Cipher Department, various encrypted intercepted messages for it to turn into clear text. It also sent its intelligence officers to be trained at Riverbank in the methods of cryptology, many of whom went on to serve the war effort as codebreakers under General Pershing (a Freemason) at GHQ in France. The facts regarding the critically important and indispensable contribution made by the Riverbank Cipher Department to the official and systematic beginnings of the cryptologic hegemony achieved by US military intelligence over the rest of the world only began to emerge, and only then to a very limited extent, in the latter part of the twentieth century, mostly with the publication of The Codebreakers by David Kahn.

For more than a century, a series of official military intelligence historians even in secretly commissioned works that were unknown and unavailable to the public, have deliberately and systematically concealed important facts and information about Riverbank. In the last decade of the twentieth century more information began to find its way into the public domain if only principally through the specialist Cryptologia quarterly journal and a relatively unknown book limited to a thousand copies published only in the United States. The full truth surrounding the Riverbank Cipher Department which carried out groundbreaking work on the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher deciphered by Elizabeth Wells Gallup from the Shakespeare works and the official work it secretly undertook for the US government and its military intelligence may never be known. However, the recent full-length work entitled The Fraudulent Friedmans: The Bacon Ciphers in the Shakespeare Works (2022), revealed for the first time new and unknown evidence, facts and information confirming that its Riverbank Cipher Department headed by Friedman proved the presence of the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher in the Shakespeare works confirming that Bacon is Shakespeare, which he and his wife Elizebeth S. Friedman fraudulently denied throughout their whole lifetimes, and continued to lie to the rest of the world about it, a secret they took to their graves, but not beyond it.

 

 The tombstone designed by William and Elizebeth Friedman contains 1 insignia and a sum total of 16 words and 98 letters. In addition to this it incorporates four sets of numbers marking the Friedmans’ birth and death dates. The addition of the four sets of numbers 1+8+9+1+1+9+6+9+1+8+9+2+1+9+8+0=82 and moreover between these dates appear a total of 6 dots. When all the characters and numbers are added together 1+16+98+82+6=203 producing a double cipher for Francis Bacon (100)/Shakespeare (103) in simple cipher. Thus the tombstone of William F. Friedman and Elizebeth S. Friedman using Bacon’s Simple Cipher System conveys the concealed truth which they had secretly known all their lives, one they wished to reveal to posterity in a way befitting two Bacon-Shakespeare cryptanalysts, that for whatever reason while they were alive, they could not or dared not, say openly and out loud:

FRANCIS BACON IS SHAKESPEARE.

Ordinarily, whatever security considerations there originally existed to obscure the historical links of the Baconian Riverbank Cipher Department with the genesis of modern US cryptologic intelligence, have surely longed ceased to exist. Surely, more than a century later it is no longer a matter of national security. However, what is not known to our conventional history and the current modern world, is its true importance stretches back to seventeenth century England. As a result of its decipherments the Riverbank Cipher Department became inextricably intertwined with the continuing secrecy surrounding the secret life and writings of Francis Bacon. Beginning with the fact that he was the secret concealed royal son of the so-called Virgin Queen Elizabeth I of England and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. A State Secret that has been systematically suppressed for more than four hundred years by the British State (including MI5 and MI6) and the education and academic establishment. Secondly, that the illiterate/semi-illiterate William Shakspere of Stratford wrote the Shakespeare works, the greatest literary fraud of all time, as they were written by Bacon, which is also known to the British State (including MI5 and MI6) and the education and academic establishment. Thirdly, that Francis Bacon (with his Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood) was the Founding Father of the United States of America, a secret known to both the US and British States, US and British Intelligence, and the invisible elite of its education and academic establishments controlled and directed by their invisible States and Intelligence Organizations. The secret life and writings of Francis Bacon are carefully watched over by his invisible Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood and the invisible elite of British and US Intelligence to the present day, including the same invisible powers that direct the NSA.

Hi A Phoenix

Since The Fraudulent Friedmans was published two years ago you have continued to expand and distil the historical  intersection between Riverbank's original mission and the secret service agencies of the USA and UK. Finally, I think I'm beginning to see why you have been so relentless (and brilliant) in pursuing this taboo subject. It puts Francis Bacon and his authorship of the Shakespeare plays in a factual contemporary setting, rather than remaining confined to the province of "Baconian scholarship". It's a sort of reverse engineering, starting with a factual modern history account, working backwards in time to the authorship of the Shakespeare plays. I suspect that you realised long ago that Riverbank is another "entrance" point into the mystery of Francis Bacon. Calling all ambitious documentary film-makers...

Love you AP. I honestly think your tireless services to the authorship question and FB’s history deserves a medal. Got to say on this one though that I have read them all and gone back and re read Shakespeare Examined and your book on the Friedman’s, and a whole host of other things, and I’m now pretty convinced that there’s another angle to look at this.

I think it is highly possible that  the Friedman’s got caught in a situation, much like I and many people are familiar with, where one gets enthused by a belief,  throws themselves into it only to realise over time that it doesn’t stack up. You already know my feelings about Wells - Gallup but I genuinely believe them when they say that Elizabeth (Wells-Gallup) was well-meaning, but that over time they came to realise she was showing sign of delusion, if not psychological disturbance.  Who knows what they were hearing about Dr Owen too! This would account for why they wrote things, (perhaps at a stage where they hadn’t yet become disillusioned) and then didn’t want their name on docs/booklets or to draw attention to them. It’s pretty apparent the Friedman’s were caught between realising that they’d never have got to where they were, or even met each other, without Col Fabyan but also it is clear that, over time, they didn’t agree with him. Also it’s made plain that they were all learning Cryptography as they went along, and the more immersed in it they became, the more their views changed.
 

It could be for this reason that they waited until Fabyan and Wells-Gallup were dead to write about the whole episode/time there. They’d then be free to publicly call her mindset into question without upsetting either of them.

Also, just from a critical thinking standpoint, Friedman is making it clear that their early equipment was just a magnifying glass, a ruler and a set square for judging angles. The differences in the typefaces were said to be so miniscule that one couldn’t visibly see them. If we then think about the printing press process in 1623, the printer had a whole box of different letters in different typefaces, italic and roman, capitals and if the biliteral is there they’d have needed a ‘b’ form.
 

Each and every one of these had to be made by hand, a tiny mould carved and metal poured into it. The chances of slight imperfections (that Wells- Gallup was seeing as being a b font) was therefore highly likely. If the letters (the tiny little type pieces) had been sufficiently different – like the alphabets shown in Advancement of Learning -  to be seen with the eye, that’s different, but making one’s with very little discernible difference would be very, very difficult to execute reliably, as each one has a tiny surround that is then set  onto the lines on the press. I asked Claude for confirmation of this rather than deducing this from what “Claude” said. The whole premise (the Friedmans eventually distanced themselves from) was ascertaining these tiny differences, but they would have naturally occurred.IMG_2717.jpeg.8f2a9dfdb3bed9d6c05269ab57ffecc4.jpegIMG_2718.jpeg.b5788bf6b3ea63fb2e18f4b44ad6e412.jpeg

I have to say I read Shakespeare Examined  as if it was something I had written. It’s sensible and sticks to strict, ordered methodology.

IMG_2719.jpeg.9f93efe4b07ad0b0a8c7ac7b114034aa.jpeg

All that said, I do think that the Friedman’s were “fraudulent” in so far as keeping their true feelings from the public – maybe for very good reasons to do with British/USA relations. I think the fine line here is that they are saying that there is no biliteral (or any typeface) cipher message as posited  by Wells-Gallup, plus many of the other cipher methods proposed by others, all fall down too for various reasons BUT I did not find them saying Bacon didn’t write Shakespeare.
 

In fact in their summation they make it clear that they had not looked into whether there were other forms of ciphers that would pass their strict test  themselves, and even go on to say that if Baconians and the general public wish to try again –

 

IMG_2715.jpeg.fb129e20ac1207fced5c393bb8cdc836.jpeg

which could be seen as tacit agreement by them that all is not lost if anyone wants to keep trying.  I sincerely doubt they would not have looked themselves, so that may be part of what they kept suppressed as opposed to a cover up that Wells – Gallup had found something.

Apologies this getting very long! 

As far as Cartier is concerned, I think we have to recall the dates of what he wrote vis a vis the date of the book, and also how much people may still have been trying to keep Fabyan happy. They must surely have been trying not to insult him, as he was funding so much of this entire ‘training cryptographers for the war effort’ project, - as the more recent plaque recognises.

In conclusion then I think the Friedman’s have been ambiguous about whether Bacon wrote Shakespeare but unambiguous about the loopy Dr Owen and slightly deluded Wells Gallup theory. That doesn’t make the son of QE1 theory fall down, as there is other evidence, (which is where she would have got the idea to find it hidden in the works from in the first place).

The cipher on the Friedman’s grave is absolute proof of their love of Bacon. The cipher encoded on the plaque of Fabyan is interesting, but unfortunately not conclusive as it could just be pointing to his fascination with Bacon ciphers in Shakespeare;  something you’d expect to be encoded by the NSA.
 

Again, please see this as thoughtful conversation (apols for the length) and just my opinion as to another possible angle, and not as any criticism of your amazing work.❤️

THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY (NSA) THE MOST SECRETIVE ARM OF US INTELLIGENCE (CODES AND CIPHERS) AND THE PLAQUE AWARDED TO COLONEL FABYAN AND HIS RIVERBANK CIPHER DEPARTMENT WHICH CONTAINS CIPHERS REVEALING FRANCIS BACON, BROTHER OF THE
ROSY CROSS, IS SHAKESPEARE

Until recently there had been no official recognition by the US government for the invaluable service rendered by the Baconian-Shakespearean Riverbank Cipher Department, the birthplace of US cryptology and forerunner of the National Security Agency (NSA), the central and most important arm of its Intelligence Services.

This quietly changed following the discovery of previously unknown documentary material at the modern Riverbank estate by John W. Kopec which along with the industry of Louis Kruh, editor of Cryptologia, finally prompted an official response from the mighty NSA.

The events leading up to it began in 1991 when Louis Kruh contacted John W. Kopec and arranged to visit Riverbank. The tour of the place took in the laboratory and museum, ‘While we were in the museum, I surprised him with some letters and artifacts I had stored on codes and Colonel Fabyan. Kruh commented on the incredible significance that the letters and artifacts meant to the history of cryptology.’1 Kruh subsequently wrote an account of his visit in his article ‘A Cryptological Travelogue: Riverbank -1992’ printed in the January1993 edition of Cryptologia: A Quarterly Journal Devoted to Cryptology.2 For Louis Kruh the expert writer on cryptology his sojourn to the secretive Riverbank estate was a lifetime ambition, ‘This almost mythical site, described by one writer as the cradle of cryptology, became the Shangri-la that I longed to visit.’3
