Babington's Coded Response Legends and Legendary People World History Social Studies

Image of a letter called The Babington postscript and cipher, 1586. 

It is a composite image of the forged postscript to a letter by Mary Queen of Scots to Anthony Babington, together with Babington's record of the cipher used.

This document was a key piece of evidence used against Mary, Queen of Scots. The foregery was not challenged during the trial since Mary was not represented by defense counsel.
