    (CHEESY GRIN) HA! My ears were burning... (impish smile); to clarify... "LastLeg", a COVER STORY does NOT necessarilly
    mean TOTAL FICTION; the Lafitte theory WAS considered by Peter Viemeister (RIP), in his 2nd book on the Beale Treasure, and "Big Scoop" on TN is reviewing Lafitte's memoirs or something & HE sees a "link". LOL! For ALL of you. "Big Scoop" would have to clarify HIS view; for me, the "connecting link" is the War of 1812. Lafitte's men DID help Andy Jackson save New Orleans from the Brits; Paschal Buford WAS Capt. of Buford's Artillery in that war; Thomas
    Beale, Sr. WAS Capt. of Beale's Rifles in that war. 1815, the city of Lynchburg, Va. gave a parade & dinner for Gen. Andrew Jackson... even Thomas Jefferson came out from Poplar Forest, Va. (@ 5-6 miles WEST from here) for it. LOTTA history... MANY possibilities! (WINK)

    (WINK) FURTHER, when Thomas Beale, Sr. had his hotel in New Orleans, in or near the FRENCH QUARTER, where Jean Lafitte had THE TEMPLE (his blacksmith shop), Jean and "crew" MAY have stayed at Thomas Beale, Sr's hotel at times... DUNNO. It wasn't a "LEDGE OF GOLD"... the "BP" said gold glinting from a "CLEFT IN THE ROCK", an OLD MASONIC phrase in the lower degrees of the "Blue Lodge". Both Jean's older brothers were Freemasons (Pierre & Alex); Alex is even buried in one of the OLD cemeteries in the French Quarter, with a HUGE "Square & Compass" on it. It MAY even have a "code" on it... DUNNO! (WINK & GRIN)

    Much will come to light on the subject. Many new things have been uncovered lately and others are still being uncovered and reviewed. All I can tell you at this time is that it is going to be very, very hard for anyone to dispute the Laffite/French theory when it is finally all said and done. The recent uncovering of one document in particular is extremely telling. For those of you who believe in Laffite's involvement, keep believing. For those of you who don't, you should and most certainly will. I told Reb a while back the noose is being tightened and the sprawling gallows were slowly being built....so Boys, "get ready for a lot of hanging!"

    I don't doubt Laffite's involvement, but I doubt Beale BEING Laffite. I say that because Laffite would have been going into Beale's home area, where Beale had been gone from for only a short while, claiming to be him. Obviously I could be wrong, but I don't see any intelligent person taking such a foolish risk. And whoever it was that visited Robert Morriss was intelligent.

    I would say you are probably correct in your assessment.

    Without saying too much at this time, I will offer you this much:

    In the pamphlet were are told that all of the members of Beale's party had to first agree to certain terms & conditions.
    In the Laffite memoirs it is explained to us, in regard to George Graham's visit to Galveston Island and his conversations with General Lallemand that, "George Graham was unaware that Lallemand was under oath to New Orleans."

    Recently a "bombshell" document was discovered that explains both the oath and these terms and conditions. This document is also signed and dated, and, the signer of this document can be directly connected to Laffite and the perilous enterprise he was involved in.

    Jean & Pierre + multinational privateering, smuggling by ships = "a lot" of custom house adventures & dodging.
