... seen but when people did catch a glimpse of her, she was wearing white (Cody 30). Although she hardly ever got out she did not withdraw from society on a mental level. Dickinson wrote many letters to correspond with many friends and relatives.

In her writings she is "enigmatic and abstract, sometimes fragmented, and often forcefully sudden in emotion." She often included her poetry in these letters and was often encouraged to publish her work. After a failed attempt, though, she did not try again (Cody 42). Between seven and eleven of her poems were published during her lifetime but they ...
13: Cryptography
... algorithms ever used was the one called the Caesar cipher, that was used by Julius Caesar to send messages to his generals. It consisted simply of switching each letter with the letter that was 3 letters further down the alphabet. For example "Stephen" would become "Vwhskhq". To decrypt the message, the receivers would simply subtract 3 letters from each letter. This algorithm was later improved and called ROT13, where the letters could be shifted to any number between 1 and 25, and the number of letters shifted was the secret key. This very simple algorithm has been used on Usenet successfully to prevent people from ...

That is because Bacon had ciphered this too, this time using a substitution cipher invented by Julius Caesar. (Leary, Chpt 9) That is, shifting the whole sequence of a plain text alphabet to match a cipher text alphabet, for example: matching "a" with "b", "b" with "c" and so on. The question is, which letters do you match? Cryptographers often leave clues in their cryptograms. Notice the first words of the Dedication are, "TO THE ONLIE" and the last word is "FORTH".
