    Using the Landmarks and Clues mentioned in page one and three, I have plotted these into the map which they called as Guanaham or the Indies. Note that Buford's in this map is not what was meant in page 2, in the message it was described as "North, the fourth(4 miles)" "Of government" "Fail to see some great cities and lovely as trees are in Spain" which brings me to the Goose Creek Valley.

    The same as the stone that was missing, both of these clues was linked to 1 man named Paschal Buford. (I always wonder why nobody can find it, could he be a member?)

    See paragraph 2 of my translation. The landmarks paragraph where he described what could be seen in the north, west and south. Additional landmarks was on page three that I will be posting here too.

    Instruction in page 1 was to find out what the word SALVADOR means. To which he said that it was "The Sea-Coast of a certain Harbor at the end". This was also in the opening statement in page three, to go there and give the name Thomas J. Beale to a man he named as "The Illustrious King".

    The only way this solution will be logical was that...

    If Thomas J. Beale will send this key(First Voyage) to Mr. Morriss with another sheets of paper filled with numbers.
    These numbers represents the words that will be taken from each of the numbers in page1 and 3.

    Example the word...
    Proclamation = 1 word
    to the people = 3 words
    fleet that the illustrious king and queen our sovereign gave me = 11 words
    and a boat with a master seaman =7 words
    name of royal standard = 4

    This will be written in a sheet full of numbers.

    1, 3, 11, 7, 4, etc..

    It was as if they have plans within plans.

    Here is the Page one message of my decipherment. This is as of January 30, 2021. I found and error in my counting and slightly changed this(revising).

    Still, we have problems in this solution.
    1. The key that I used was first published later than 1822.
    2. The words are arbitrary, meaning we don't know how many words we should get in each numbers.

    A criticism is a must here, comments are welcomed. If possible, try it yourself. Base on my understanding, the purpose of this message was for Mr. Morriss to know what Salvador means. We just need to use synonyms.
    This solution is bothering me as there is too much coincidence.

    THE LOCALITY OF THE VAULT

    Queen our Sovereigns gave me(38) and a boat with a master seaman(1701)

    Many leagues that nothing new appeared, island like all the others.
    The name of Hispaniola success, that our Lord wonderfully granted. People
    without number but with name. When I came it was impossible to speak to
    the people. Me in my voyage to the Indies with the fleet, the name of
    San Salvador I could not speak. I followed the coast of that isle toward
    the west, as I know, commemoration of his Divine Majesty, display of the
    Royal Standard, without opposition excelling any.

    I determined in thirty, were covered with blossoms, there were palm
    trees. I saw another isle to the eastward, Santa Maria, gave a new name-

    thus, glorious success that so high. To tell you how lovely my voyage,

    impossible to speak to the eastward, and succeeded in talking to them.
    I gave them some of everything I had. Me in my voyage I have taken
    possession for their higHNess, that they seem to touch the sky, that
    they never lose their foliage, thus to each one that I thought it might
    be the mainland opposition to the display of the Royal Standard in the

    Personal Opinion about the message:


    1st paragraph of my translation, it was an instruction for Mr. Morriss to communicate to a group of people referred as fleet, describing them as the Ingenious men at their success and that they know that his men would come to get the treasure.

    2nd paragraph was all about landmarks, what is in the North, West, South with Landmarks given..

    3rd paragraph was them finding the best place where to bury the treasure(possibly Harkening Hill?) then went west(sheep creek road) where he met some Indians(Cherokees?) and found a home or cabin of "Divine Majesty" which i think is Elizabeth Wood Smith.

    4th paragraph was when they are from Bedford(Thirty/Boundaries of Bedford) going to Peaks of Otter, Also giving an instruction that they saw a town to its east, described as (Santa Maria, Gave a new town name), with this my research has led me that the original name of Lynchburg was Campbell County(I dont know this), from the name Mary Campbell.Then instructed Morriss to figure out the word SALVADOR.

    5th paragraph was the very exact location of the deposit, the Hill that was given by Mary Polly Dooley-Wood, where he said that there is a settlement to the east, with Indians. Also describing the Sharp top mountain, Taylor's Mountain and the land possibly the Peaks of Otter Winery Area or the centre isle..

    6th paragraph was giving the first cargo to locals/Indians which was explained as a purchase of the Harkening hill. The reason why one third of the gold was gone, which was also in page 3. Also stating that with this actions, he owned the hearts of the Indians, they performed dances or rituals. The Indians offered to guide them. with an exact words "I have taken possession a Galley". Possibly to help them carry stuff?

    7th paragraph they agreed and explored with them, saw pine trees further west from the hill..(Campbell or taylors mountain area-in page 3 he described a town west from there -Montvale?) Also explaining he found another group of Indians with no hair. With a message "I write this to gave whether it be anything of great or small value has given in thirty- of Cathay(westerners), and the name you will be rejoiced at(meeting/happy).

    8th, there is an event in that area where he said he named a queen, possibly a child as Maria month of First..(very questionable that I wanted to delete this portion, Mary Jan(e)?) and they gave weapons as gift.

    9th, Describing the area(I think back to harkening hill or Johnson-Dooley farm) telling that he found Pines there and extensive ranges of Meadow land. Stating the the people from the west gave him that land.(in page 3 it was there that Mary bought a land from the people found on the west, by a request made by elizabeth.) Could this be the Johnson- Dooley farm in Sweet birch lane?

    10th paragraph was describing northern part of Bedford as inhabited by numberless people, where he found new whites, the area is good for pasturage and farming.(Woods as first settlers)

    11th The word SALVADOR is revealed as the Harbor-like formation of the blue ridge mountains

    12th paragraph was describing that he found fields of cotton going north, it was elevated with many mountains(The Blue ridge Mountains)

    13th He learned that Bedford has the most fertile soil for planting(i dont know this), saying that the people found in its east(Campbell county) "the eastward with the fleet discovered all I have taken possession to the people without opposition. And of all at once, I continued the said route, so they returned no iron, nor, steel, nor weapons". They also said that they named the place Mr. Morriss will be going in THIRTY-(Bedford-boundaries, See in landmarks section)

    14th, explaining that he gave confidence which brings them success. And some things he is very happy where he found people, large flowing rivers, new white small communities and explored for three days be it valuable to them or not.(interesting pattern- see one with numbers)

    15th, Saying that he was covered with fear while exploring since cities sent 2 men to the Indies(peaks of otter area) for interrogation, asking him if the letter that he is writing will give him hundred(dollars) in exchange.

    16th, Back to Harkening Hill area, it was Winter, he said that he don't know what is the name of the route further north, to the Northern Indian tribe. explaining that SAN SALVADOR(note that this is different from SALVADOR) is the name he gave to the third hill of the Peaks of Otter. Who was owned by a certain Divine Majesty(Isabella/Elizabeth).

    17th a town has took some gold on the north, so changed route. Also west, he is not successful. He said that Majesty who are living with the Indians is inhabited by numberless people, it was declared as the area they will bury the treasure. The natives allowed it, John did not know that he is writing a letter to Morriss.

    18th describing the route north towards Goose creek valley (Cobbs Gap) as he found varieties of trees there. And the land north is Good for planting too. He Speaks about his expedition that was greater than the people who oppose him(confusing). Also speaking about Divine Intervention or something like the holy spirit that the lord wonderfully granted through Christ. Saying that when he was born, as if his success was already set in a stone.

    19th paragraph, Back to the Harkening Hill, he explained that he mastered the routes and landmarks since John(Illustrious King) allowed him to freely explored the area. He explained here that he gave one third of the gold and the remaining were still so much to please the party, that they could earn a thousand dollars..

    20th, explains that there is elevated and enumerable people. He went to the cities(explored) since the party gained more confidence. Also saying that the people there will not see great rewards/recognition if they gave the name of his leader(maybe referring to Elizabeth/ Indian Chief(page 3 described Isabella as Indies queen(because first settlers have good relationship with indians))

    21st, The Ending. My translation is

    "I know you will be welcomed at the home of John and Mary/Elizabeth(Queen), I learned that at the end of many Journey full of failure, success comes to some. And the blessing that our lord has given, and of all that will arrive.


    Note that this is only my personal understanding or opinion of the message. It was very tricky and playful at the same time.

    Exactly. This is one of the reasons why people was led into countless conclusions. Without having a very solid proof that the treasure or the party existed. The main problem of this solution was the key. Did they get a copy of the 1816 version(first english translation)? Did the party make the very first translation or the version that I used? Did they release it after they got the treasure? Who released this version was he related to a Beale party member?

    I have so many questions that I could not answer.


    Definitely, this solution might have tricked me into believing about the names of John, Mary and Elizabeth Wood Smith to which according on the message, the names are in Hispaniola. That the Original location they planned to bury the treasure was the Harkening hill, and when they returned they found a new Indian settlement. That they was given a land by Mary because of this, now named as the Johnson-Dooley farm.

    I don't want to be bias here, the words in each numbers are arbitrary. Without proper instruction, we could never conclude anything from this solve.
    However, I have decided to share it with everyone may it be valuable or not to the topic.

    In page 1, instructions were to figure out the Word SALVADOR. Which was referred as the Harbor-like formation of the Blue Ridge.

    This page 3, was instruction to go there and give the name (Assuming Thomas J. Beale) to a person he named as "The Illustrious King" which is a John(John Wood?)

    It was as if it looks like a game of substitution of synonyms..

    Diplay = view
    Island = Hill, land, treasure, dollars etc.
    Discovered = Explored or found.
    Royal Standard = Noble
    Display of the Royal Standard = Majestic View
    Highness = Mountain

    It will make some sense that should not at all make any sense. It really plays my mind.

    This is an example of a sentence that should never make sense at all, except if we use synonyms or how do you call this again? The Hidden meaning of words.

    The Sharp top described as opposite to the view of the Nobles in the center land. That they never lose their foliage.

    Me in my voyage I have taken possession(climbed) for their highness(mountain), that they seem to touch the sky(tall/high), that they never lose their foliage, thus to each one that I thought it might be the mainland opposition to the display(View) of the Royal Standard(nobles) in the centre isle(peaks of otter Winery area), of his divine majesty(owned?Elizabeth?). In my voyage I have taken possession(purchased) for their highness(mountain).

    Still, we have problems in this solution.
    1. The key that I used was first published later than 1822.
    2. The words are arbitrary, meaning we don't know how many words we should get in each numbers.

    A criticism is a must here, comments are welcomed. If possible, try it yourself. Base on my understanding, the purpose of this message was for Mr. Morriss to know what Salvador means. We just need to use synonyms.
    This solution is bothering me as there is too much coincidence.

    There is no treasure, It was retrieved by the party.

    If we based on the page 1 and 3 of this solution, the locals named as John, Mary and Elizabeth(Assuming Woods) who have a good relationship with the Indians(The first settlers) knew where it is. That is if the message was valid. The treasure should be in the Johnson-Dooley farm. As mentioned that an "Island" given by Maria, at the end of Harkening Hill, and located north east from Taylors/Campbells mountain(Coincidence).

    Maybe check for old spoons or something relevant there?

    Here is another exact description of the area.

    I write this(21) to tell you(24)to find out(283) one I gave a new name(134) Salvador(92)(Which he really gave a meaning of this word in page one..)

    I have taken possession(63) set in(246) lovely as trees are in Spain(486) nor are they fit for them(682) reJOiced at the glorious success that our Lord
    has given(7) and finding at the end of(219) a few small settlements where it was impossible to speak to(184) the eastward(360) and succeeded in
    talking to them I gave them some of everything I had(780) me in my voyage(18) I have taken possession for their higHNess(64) that they seem
    to touch the sky(463) that they never lose their foliage(474) thus(131) that I thought it might be the mainland(160) opposition to the(79)
    display of the Royal Standard(73) in the centre isle(440) of his divine majesty(95) In my voyage I (18) have taken possession for their
    highness(64) and there(581) the Indies(34) Highness(69) fifth Juana(128) which I gave the name of HispaNIola(367)

    However, as I have said, there is something wrong with this decipherment. It was arbitrary and that this version was published later than 1822. We could not simply say that the party is the original translator of this, after the 1816 Edinburgh review(its far). No proofs. Zero.

    Anyway, feel free to try the key number by number and that you will notice the pattarn, you can even predict the next word or sentence that he will use :-). This is open to the public, Its fun though. Every numbers has links and coincidences, but zero solid proof.
