    Did you notice something wrong this week about names and date?

    Lets recap from 4B
    763 Boxes 1st 43 box slides are more worn
    40 is lowest box number on register in last few months (??? its 38 in the case files)
    9 binary characters per box
    512 encodings (ie 9 bit binary 000000000 to 111111111 = 0 to 511 decimal)***
    B. Tallmadge – most common entry name

    *** there is more binary info in 5A when you have decrypted it.
    763 is still giving me trouble, so far 760 is the norm.

    Just noticed there are TWO date<->box that do not add up but is that important?
    ______M__D__Y
    SUN 07-10-22 > 07+10 = 17
    MON 07-11-22 > 07+11 = 18
    THU 07-21-22 > 07+21 = 28
    MON 08-01-22 > 08+01 = 09
    MON 08-08-22 > 08+08 = 16
    MON 08-15-22 > 08+15 = 22 <??? DATE GIVES 23 but 22 written down
    SUN 08-21-22 > 08+21 = 29
    TUE 08-30-22 > 08+30 = 38
    THU 09-01-22 > 09+01 = 10
    MON 09-05-22 > 09+05 = 14
    WED 09-07-22 > 09+07 = 12 <??? DATE GIVES 16 but 12 written down
    MON 09-12-22 > 09+12 = 21

    @Harry
    Thanks for ANSWERING my question (it wasn’t a no!) it was something new to me and I enjoyed reading about it.

    763 is the product of two primes.

    About message #87231 I noted two quirks:
    – In 5B, at the begining, we have ” think we made a mistake in hiring Jade”, “she told me that Jade…” and at the end “, could you keep tabs on Jodie? ”

    – “Tallmadge used the British date convention when he signed in on the eleventh of June.” instead of July.

    5A recap
    512 pictograms outlined, the remaining
    248 were not. (512+248=760) (why not 251 to give 763?)

    512 being 9 binary digits of 0’s and 1’s
    (000000000->111111111 = 0->511)
    248 being 9 binary digits of 0’s to 7 digits of 1’s plus 2 digits of 0’s
    (000000000->111111100 = 0->508)

    with and without grid (add left most 0 or 1, 0000000000 – 1111111100 10 bits)
    0000000000 1111111100 = 0-1020 decimal, final range 512+509= 1021

    The reading is to be left to right and down so box 23 is

    1 0 1
    1 0 0
    0 1 1

    = 101 100 011 giving (10 digit binary)
    (0)101100011 = 355 decimal if it has a grid
    (1)101100011 = 867 decimal if it has no grid

    Disclaimer: This is my own workings it may or may not be correct.

    I think Madness has a crystal ball!

    The code on the slip of paper 23 says “lady”.

    @f6exb
    What is the binary value of box 23? That decimal should lead you to a female spy agent. I read up about her a week ago (see posts #87257 & #87300)
    Of course whether she is or will be part of the story I no not.

    I also read these stories, but some say that agent 355 did not really exist.
    In the Culper Ring code, 355 translates into “Lady”.
