Quatrain

-----------------------------------------------------------defeat the English.
Leur drapeau aura des étoiles et des bandes.-----Their flag will have stars and
---------------------------------------------------------- stripes.
Morse wrote his solution for Quatrains 13 to 18:
13. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
14. GALILEO
15. ISCAAC NEWTON?
16. GREAT FIRE OF LONDON
17. BACH, BEETHOVEN, MOZART
18. THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.
The scientist who discovered the laws of motion clearly sounded like Isaac Newton,
but Morse was unsure about the part about arresting counterfeiters. He could not get an
Internet signal on the plane, so he could not look up the question. He would later learn
that Isaac Newton had once worked for the Mint, and had disguised himself in a sting
operation to locate and arrest counterfeiters.
Morse went through the remaining quatrains (see Appendix) and provided similar
solutions. He now had a total of 49 of the missing 58 quatrains. His finished list looked
as follows:
1. KING HENRY VIII
2. VLAD THE IMPALER
3. POPE ALEXANDER VI
4. POPE JULIUS II
5. POPE LEO X
6. MARTIN LUTHER
7. POPE CLEMENT VII
8. POPE PAUL III
9. COPERNICUS
10. POPE PAUL IV
11. POPE JULIUS III
12. IVAN THE TERRIBLE
13. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
14. GALILEO
15. ISCAAC NEWTON?
16. GREAT FIRE OF LONDON
17. BACH, BEETHOVEN, MOZART
18. THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.
19. THE FRENCH REVOLUTION
20. NAPOLEON BONAPARTE
21. CHARLES DARWIN
22. LOUIS PASTEUR
23. AMERICAN SLAVERY
24. ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL AND THE TELEPHONE
25. THOMAS EDISON AND THE LIGHTBULB
