Did I miss something? Is there any hard evidence connecting the VM to Kelly or at least his offering
any manuscript to Rudolph? Sure, he did have the manuscript from Glastonbury, but that was
apparently the different one and he certainly did not want to sell that one :-). And if Kelly, why not
rather Dee, considering all we know?
I can give you even more romantic theory: by the same token, the VM could have been written using new English cipher - we know that Dee corresponded with Cecil Burghley and probably had a contact with Francis Walsingham as well. He may have had quite a laugh when nobody in Prague could solve it - but at the same time he got the confirmation that the new English cipher is quite safe . . .
Poor Kelly - he is actually quite lucky: having had his ears cut off, he can't possibly hear all this :-).
