The first step, then, is to unhide the cipher language - we can worry about
the difficulties of breaking it afterwards. So, all my suggestions about
paired ciphers relate to unhiding the code, rather than to breaking that
code. FWIW, I don't believe I'll be the one to break the code, but I might
just be the one to unhide it... fingers crossed! :-)

Oops - forgot to ADD "SPACES" in the equation(s) below if they are
important they are now inserted (see " ^^^ "> -sorry-
SNIP again... (most)

-=se=->
ANYWAY (and I can fax you the page if you like - as ascii requires I
change some of my (original dream) characters here.)

IF you let:

" "	 space equal space;
Nx 	equal 1 of (4 of 8) gallows;
xN 	equal the other 1/2 (4 of 8) gallows;
+	equals the continuation until next "Nx" or "xN";
n	equals lower case vms stanalone char's (non gallows)
nx	 "	"	" unkown number >7?  (greater than 7?)

[<se> more funny shapes <se>]
"scripty F"  = "%" 	equals FOLDING/FLIPPING of key
% until encounter of Nx
"script n\x" = "#"	equals lower case (nx)
actually looks a medical Rx but is "n"\x

---------------------------------------------
THEN:
---------------------------------------------
^^^ "spaces" ^^^ "spaces" ^^^
1) Nx(1)nx % (then Nx=Xn)%
2) Nx(2)nx % (then Nx=Xn)%

3-8) etc..
---------------

#=(abcdefgh) 1 of 2 lower characters

xN+(abcdefgh)=xN+# (*) <- actual STAR <se>

xN(+abcdefgh)
--------------- <- over line or divided by? =>VMS
Nx(+abcdefgh)

xN(+abcdefgh)
--------------- <- over line or divided by? =>VMS
Nx(+hgfedcba)

mirror?

A		B		A

C		D-D		C---C		D

B		A		B

SNIP....

like" to me?

Also, ES said "I CAN DECODE" this, but NOT read IT :-(, If Nick can
"UNHIDE IT", and someone else can "READ IT", will you please let me
know what it says? (THANKS in ADVANCE).

Best to you & yours

The above is way OVER MY HEAD in math!
