Bacon's Signature Ciphers in Shakespeare -79- Lawyer


42)  Now we return to significant page numbers. First we consider that page 103 of the Comedies can represent the name “Shakespeare” in the Simple alphabet. Then we find that on the previous page of 102, that the last word (not counting the turnover word) is “will”. This can give the coded reading of “Will Shakespeare”. There are only two page 103s in the whole First Folio. This could of course just be a coincidence, but there are quite a few other words that could have been in that location other than “will”.

43)  Then we look at the only other page 103 in the First Folio. This is in the Histories, and the very last word (this time the Turnover word) on that page is the word “Lawyer” which was Bacon’s profession. So the collated page 103s together, along with the last spoken word on page 102 of the Comedies, can indicate “Will Shakespeare Lawyer”.

44)  There is no page 103 in the Tragedies. Though we return once more to the 1640 edition of Bacon’s “Of the Advancement and Proficience of Learning”. On page 103 of this book, and only on this page, do we find the suggestive phrase of “revealed Will, and his Secret Will.”

And to top off these seeming coincidences we return to Gilbert Wats himself. When I first mentioned him I referred to him as having “supposedly” been the “interpreter” or translator of Bacon’s work. One Baconian, Bertram Theobald, whose work the Friedmans criticized on page 177, became suspicious of this Gilbert Wats, and found that there was no Gilbert Wats that had just one ‘t’ in his last name, though it is possible that he could have spelt it with one ‘t’. And though the Gilbert Watts that is listed in the Dictionary of National Biography lists him as Bacon’s translator, this may have only been an assumption upon the editor’s part.
