   Notice that in Column 13, Row 4, the horizontal plaintext word “devise” crosses “VERE”. “Devise” is used in dozens of arrays in Shakespeare plaintexts in similar contexts, such as “invention” and “compounds strange”, and is equivalent to “code (s)”.

   But the question still remains: “Why, in every work attributed to William Shakespeare, can be found dozens if not hundreds of letter-strings and clusters referring unambiguously and directly to Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford; and not to himself or to Bacon, Sackville, Christopher Marlowe, or a host of other contenders for the true authorship of the Shakespeare canon? And referring not just to the truth that “Vere” is the subject in so many letter-string encryptions, but to the “nigard (niggard)” truth. The origin of the word “niggard” is uncertain, and has several possible connotations. One, however, is that “niggard” comes from the Germanic 14th century (ca.) “genau”, “precise, exact”. In so many words, then, the sonnet sentence use of “nigard” is saying that the “nigard truth” is the precise, the exact, the (as we would say in this day and age) ‘bare bones, and literal truth’. That you can ‘take it to the bank’ truth. (February 19, 2013)
