    Did anybody else do the math?

    For 10 different letters taken in groups of 4, there are 10000 possible combinations. If the letters were chosen at random, I calculated that there would be a 96.8% chance that none of the groups would match after choosing 26 groups of 4. (someone please check my math)
    I'm swirling & coalescing, but I'm still not understanding.

    i don't understand, unless it's just the 1st and last #'s are the same so you use the hest #'s.
    all i see is:
    page 2 with 0
    or #'s 1,3,4,5,6
    or subtracting, 7, 13,13, 7,
    or reflection, 1 w/52----4 w/52

    Unhappy Filled Letters

    Look at page 1 of the BOS for the filled letters. Count off every 4th letter based upon some of the observations above. Take only the ones (groups of 4) that have a filled letter. Use the bacon cipher with 4 letters listed above. I tried this and only came up with 6 letters. I could have made some mistakes and will re-check but does this even seem reasonable?

    I will try again with 5 and see it is any better. Perhaps someone else could try this approach and let me know. I do think a bacon type cipher could be applicable here.

    I tried to cut and paste the copy of the page transcription but all the markings disappeared. Sorry
