Conspiracy: Meriwether Lewis And Thomas Jefferson’s Missing Documents

Some lost treasures do not consist of gold, silver, or precious gems, yet their value exceeds monetary reckoning. Some even consider these lost treasures priceless, and a few seem to be cursed, considering the experience of those who figure prominently in them – such are the valued treasures of lost documents. Roman leaders, for instance, consulted the Sibylline Books for 900 years before they disappeared. And then Rome fell. Many Mayan texts, including the famous Codices, were burned by Spanish conquistadors and Catholic monks in the 16th century. A precious few were copied and hidden, otherwise history would never even have reported on them. And the once mighty Maya empire collapsed into the mists of time, leaving only magnificent, crumbling ruins in their wake, where once gold sparkled in the morning sunrise. 

The Hebrew Bible, called the Old Testament by Christians, cited about 20 chronicles that no longer exist. How can anyone put a price tag on the Dead Sea Scrolls or the Nag Hammadi texts? Scholars consider all these beyond price. The Lewis missing documents might hold a key to the 1803 Louisiana Purchase of territory considered vital by Thomas Jefferson, and Lewis died while having them in his possession. Does of verdict of suicide cover up a conspiracy to murder?
