  • Does this require a calculator . . .?
Here 'tis (From a lucky line of discovery I tried several nights ago):

Know the start letters from the keywords(I brute-forced them), which change with every comma.

Write down the individual keyword letter at the beginning of each number group -- like a bingo call. 

Each number is actually a letter exactly "x" units away,added or subtracted, on an alphabet range (included below for covienience).

Keyword letters + number letters are both needed, in order, for plaintext.

Also each keyword changes with every row.  Therefore you need the correctly spaced lines (not smushed together to save space) from the Project Gutenburg Internet Archive Pamplet, or you are sunk.

I am posting because while I have a definate method that works for both Ciphers 1 and 3, I do not have all the keywords.  Beale 1 seems to be a "Masquerade"-type hunt. Dependant on date and time.  Beale 3 is a group of wills, each line listing a seperate family, with the keyword being their family member.
