"Rebuilding" Mccormick´s note one
-This is a STENOGRAPHIC problem and not is a cryptographic problem.
- My solution is a stenographic solution. I have reconstructed a text and ideas expressed in it.
-It is a stenographic text because so many vowels have gone. Vowels remaining in the text are only necessary for the successful reconstruction of the original text, which is common in shorthand systems.
-The truth is that a stenographic text can only be reconstruct exactly by the original stenographer (Mccormick, or just a member of his stenographic school).
-My solution is an "imaginative" solution based on my transcription made in the chapter four "DECODE".
-The facts can show if i have or i have no reason.
1- Monday. I am doing my things in Marais, this is some insignificant for either. (All is mine). //option 2 (this is my life)//.
2- We are thieves because we need and we have a plan. I decide to stop whatever i pretended to do by something that i see is much more of praise.
3- Had been a good idea to go with a mate there to see that we could get (and make possible targets and roads safe for a thief) .
4- Had been when after leaving the curve reaches the pit is out of the way , and i see that this an ideal place to do what i like to do.
5- Had been elected a place easy to find, easy to operate, easy to test, and easy to retrieve any object hidden in it if that i would do.
6- All that had been left and this has been legally obteined, and so must be declared as i would like that this had been understood.
7- (You must not be fussy or to be at leisure as had been done by me). You should carefully review my encoded text because i would like to be careful for a reason necessary.
8- In those times the teenagers were thieves for need and i would to be like them .... and i end up being one of them.
9- 1971 had been the year of my failure and which i regained the good sense.
10- 1974 had been the year to cede and which i found the best safe place for me.
11- 1975 had been the year of overcoming poverty i have the best chance to redeem my self.
12- A thief called ¿THORN? had dissapeared, this would be the only unsolved murder like i would not have been.
12_option 2 - Thief and HAMDALLAH. I regret the abscence of one person, this is the only unsolved murder like i would not have been.
13- In 1994 i was in jail for statutory rape and i had been guilty for it. (something terrific for me) //option 2 (came something terrifiyng)//.
+ I think MARAIS is Marais Temps Clair, conservation area, Missouri.
+ Mccormick was released from prison in 1994.
-------------------Addenda et corrigenda: 7 July--------------------------
+ "THORN" or "HAMDALLAH" is the subject of an unsolved murder, see:
++__McCormick may have been regarded as something of a simpleton who, despite some street smarts and his criminal record, was generally naïve to the world. The same cannot be said for the men who ran the Amoco gas station at 1401 Chouteau Avenue south of downtown St. Louis where he worked.
++__On March,1998__"while working at the family's Amoco station, Baha Hamdallah was arrested again, this time on a felony charge of second-degree assault, for allegedly beating a man named Elroe Carr with a rusty hammer. Baha allegedly threatened to kill Carr, described by family and acquaintances as a sometimes-homeless drug addict, if he didn't get off the property. Baha told police, "I just figured I'd take care of this myself," according to the incident report.
++__On August 7, 1998, two weeks before Carr's case against Baha Hamdallah was slated to go to court, Carr was gunned down just blocks from the Amoco station on a residential street in the neighboring housing project. The pending assault charges against Baha died that night with Carr.__
