    I found your article on the founder’s code cracked very interesting. I am a direct descendant of Roger Williams and would like to know where I can get more information about this code. I have almost finished this side of the family tree and thought it would be interesting to include a little more information about this code.
    Thank You for all the research you, former library director Edward Widmer and Brown University students have done to unravel the “Mystery Book” by Williams.
