Whenever I discuss Dr Benjamin Church Jr with someone not familiar with him and I mention the fact that he was arrested after attempting to smuggle a cipher letter to his brother-in-law in British occupied Boston, invariably I get a reaction that indicates that Dr Church must have been up to something no good if he sent a letter that was encrypted. I think a discussion of the use of ciphers in letters in Colonial America would be of benefit.
