Beale Ciphers Level X

by K. Schmeh, published on 10/14/2010

In 1885, the US businessman James Ward published a booklet about an allegedly true story of a hidden treasure. According to the story, in 1823, a man named Thomas Beale hid several tons of gold and silver in a secret place and described the location of it in three encrypted messages. One of these messages was cracked, but it doesn't contain enough information to locate the treasure. The two other messages are unsolved.
