File-13, Case #13-1
Discovered the key to the Secret:
William Colgate (1753-1857) Early American entrepreneur and soap manufacturer. (Colgate/Palmolive)
Devout Baptist who helped found the Baptist Education Society in 1817 with 13 men, 13 dollars, 13 prayers, and 13 articles. This organization later evolved into Colgate University located at 13 Oak Drive in Hamilton, NY, 13346. As part of Colgate tradition, alumni are encouraged to wear Colgate apparel every Friday the 13th. The senior honor society, Konosioni, is composed of 13 women and 13 men.
In 2001, a brickwork symbol was discovered on a building at 211 Pearl Street. This building was built by William Colgate in 1832. 211 Pearl Street was one of Colgate’s most valued properties and was willed to his children with the stipulation that it could not be sold for 15 years after his death. Due to the dedicated efforts of Alan Solomon, the brickwork symbol was preserved, even though the building was eventually torn down several years after the discovery of the symbol.
William Colgate’s power and influence extended into banking and politics through the efforts of himself and his sons. James Colgate was a founding member of the New York Gold Exchange which was instrumental in getting a gold standard established in America. The Colgates were also part of the Triennial Baptists who were instrumental in getting Abraham Lincoln elected. During the panic of 1873, J.B.Colgate & Company Bank under James Colgate’s direction loaned the United States money which helped avert an economic collapse.

File-13, Case #13-2
May have known the key to the Secret. (Doubtful)
This forgotten man was a German chemist and secret agent for Abraham Lincoln. His services as a secret agent were so valued President Lincoln paid him $200 from his personal account. President Lincoln also helped this agent receive a commission to establish the 113th cavalry regiment.
After Lincoln's death he was responsible for finishing the most visible monument in Washington D.C. His work can be seen for over 30 miles away, yet it is small enough that hundreds of men, women, and children have stepped over it.
This agent was also responsible for a clever display of symbolism that few people today are aware of. A case could be made that his symbolic display was a "bitter" testimony to those he thought responsible for the murder of Abraham Lincoln. The official story is he ended his life with a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Who is this agent of Abraham Lincoln? What was his symbolic code? What does it have in common with William Colgate’s symbol?
The Latin term for "bitter salt" and its atomic number are clues to solving this history mystery.
File-13, Case #13-3
Knew the key to the Secret:
This little known founding father was a devout Christian. He is arguably one of most influential statesmen of the early Republic as well as the most continuous figure in the formative years of our government. After his retirement he spent over 20 years translating the Scriptures into English. He is responsible for the first English translation of the Septuagint and the first American English translation of the Greek New Testament.
Paradoxically, he is the person who was responsible for what many people today consider the symbol of the most notorious secret society in history. This secret society was the subject of a letter written by George Washington to Rev. G.W. Snyder in August of 1798.
What few people know, is this devout Christian was also responsible for the most blatantly Messianic symbol in American history. His Messianic symbol also gives a grave warning.
His symbol is a key which unlocks the secret of The 13th Enumeration. One of his symbols also has something in common with the 211 Pearl Street symbol on William Colgate’s building.
Who was he and what were his symbols?

File-13, Case #13-4
Almost discovered the key to the Secret:
In his own words this man was a “anglicized Irishman of Scottish extraction”. He was appointed assistant commissioner of Scotland Yard at the beginning of the investigation into the Jack the Ripper murders. Some conspiracy theorists claim he was part of a Masonic conspiracy to cover up the Ripper murders. After he retired in 1901 he was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath. His role in the Ripper investigation has been discussed in numerous articles and at least two fictional books.
A devout Christian, he knew some of the great Biblical teachers of his day. Cyrus Scofield, E.W. Bullinger and John Nelson Darby were among his circle of associates and friends. He was a respected Biblical scholar in his own right. His book “Human Destiny” was considered “the most valuable contribution on the subject”, according to C. H. Spurgeon.
What few Christians and conspiracy theorist know is that one of this man’s books is the basis for much of modern day fundamentalist Christian thought regarding 2nd Temple era Biblical Chronology and New Testament Eschatology. His one book has had profound influence on Christian thought on the following Biblical subjects:
The Persian chronology
Who was this man? What was the name of his book which has so influence Christian thought? Was he a hero or a villain? Finally, what is his connection to the other members of FILE-13?
The identity of “Artaxerxes”
The 2nd Temple era chronology
The chronology of Ezra & Nehemiah
A seven year period of end times tribulation
The timing of the Rapture
The 2nd coming of Jesus
A covenant confirmed by the Anti-Christ
The millennial kingdom
The timing and order of the book of Revelation
The basis for the restoration of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. (His book was written before this became fact)
File-13, Case #13-5
Possibly part of a conspiracy to cover up the Secret:
One of the most recognizable faces in American history, this man was a statesman, philosopher, scientist, writer, and inventor. Of the early founding fathers, of who it is said had connections to secret societies, this man’s connections are the most well established. He created the first currency of the 13 colonies. This currency had no denomination but was rich in symbolism. The key to deciphering the symbolism on this currency is found in his connections to two of the world’s most famous secret societies.
File-13, Case #13-6
Author of a list which history will record as one of the greatest ciphers of all time.
This 1st century customs official was responsible for a list which connects the lives of most all the men listed here. This list is the key to The 13th Enumeration.
Who was he and what is his famous list?
The coin below is from his era.
File-13, Case #13-7
This man was a Babylonian magician. History will bare record that his writings have been some of the most influential and insightful of the last 2500 years. He was one of the most powerful men of his generation
If you figure out who this man is you will be well on your way to understanding the secret of The 13th Enumeration.
File-13, Case #13-8
Spent most of his life searching for the secret.
This influential man believed the Bible contained a hidden code, the sacred 25” cubit was the key to diameter of the earth and the Great Pyramid contained hidden scientific facts. He also predicted the end of this age would not take place until after 2060 AD.
He was a renown scientist who advanced our understanding of calculus, mathematics, optics, and gravitational theory. Even though he is most remembered for his scientific writings, his writings on religion were more extensive. It is debated whether this man or Albert Einstein had a greater influence on the history of science.
Was he crazy, a genius, a religious fanatic, or something else? What hidden code was he looking for in the pages of the Bible. How is his quest related to secret of The 13th Enumeration?

Ahasuerus’ decree granted Persians permission to kill all Jews 12 months later on the 13th day of the 12th month of the 13th year of the King. Due to the heroic intervention of the Persian/Jewish Queen Hadassah the Jewish people turned a day of sorrow into a day of redemption and retribution. Now every year on 13-15th of Adar the Jewish people remember their deliverance with Purim.
In Persian tradition the 13th day of the 1st month is associated with bad luck and ill omen. It is called Sizdah-bedar. Sizdah-bedar means “getting rid/casting out 13”. Many Persian cities are ghost towns as Persians head outdoors to enjoy spring. It was likely this day of “Casting out 13” (Sizdah bedar) that Haman received permission to kill all the Jews in the land of Persia. On Sizdah bedar it is Persian tradition to play practical jokes. Some believe this to be the basis for April fools.
