"I think never a lady besides her, nor a Decipherer in the Court, would have 
dissolved the Figure explicated in the Allegory to have found the sense as Her 
Majesty hath done"

Marion A. Taylor Bottom, Thou Art Translated, Political Allegory in A Midsummer 
Night's Dream (Rodopi NV; Amsterdam, 1973) p.16

Hope this helps,
John Hudson

Yes . . .  if by puzzles you mean cryptograms-cryptography was a favorite 
pastime of the time period and E I was into it . . . And for more than mere 
entertainment. See Clare Asquith and Stephen Budiansky.
