I tend to agree; I've read one of his treatises (I have a reprint of it around here somewhere), and he
was perfectly capable of writing opaque alchemical books without having to resort to gibberish.
The treatise I refer to may itself be a hoax (it sounds like he's describing another book, and it
doesn't seem to hang together as well as most of the other treatises I've read); in any case,  I don't
think it would be of much use to a practicing alchemist. And as far as secret alphabets go, I think he
would have had his hands full with Enochian! :-)
