The secret and swift messenger by John Wilkins


Mercury, or, The secret and swift messenger : Shewing, how a man may with privacy and speed communicate his thoughts to a friend at any distance

1641 Wilkins published an anonymous treatise entitled Mercury, or The Secret and Swift Messenger. This was a small work on cryptography; it may well have been influenced by Godwin’s Nuncius inanimatus (1629).
