On May 14th, 1716, a mysterious letter sent from St. Jago de la Vega, Jamaica, from an unknown writer, told his unnamed brother of a buried treasure chest containing Spanish coins. The letter arrived in Philadelphia from Jamaica, and while it didn’t state in writing who penned the letter, or whose treasure it was, the letter contained in depth instructions on exactly where and what was buried. The letter speaks from one brother to another, to be trusted with a fortune and also be trusted to leave no account of it, the second portion of which the brother failed at, as the letter exists to this day still. The letter reads: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ”Dear Brother, Having said to you in my two letters all that was necessary it now remains that I give you proper directions which is as follows. At the South End of the town of Philadelphia is a Gutt of water with a few planks laid over it which the inhabitants call the drawbridge: A little to the southward of that is a rising ground called Society Hill: upon which hill is a pretty good Brick house with one apple Orchard: but is called Cherry Garden. Observe at the front of the said house which fronts the west is a porch: measure exactly 45 feet from that Porch along the lane due south, there you will find a Stone post in the ground if not moved which may be easily done by accident or perhaps by making a new fence: three feet, or perhaps four feet west from the said stone is a chest, four and a half foot long, two foot and a half broad, and the same depth accordingly, being about six feet from the bottom of the chest to the surface of the ground. It contains 1,500 pieces of silver or pieces of eight, so called and four times the fill of my hat in reales, and double reales otherways, bits and double bits: and further contains 250 quadruple pistole pieces commonly called Double Double Loans: perhaps there may be a few more or less: for time would not allow of any exact recording. NB: If you will not follow my advice and go there with the first opportunity, I order you to immediately burn this direction and both my letters and send me a particular act and direct for me exactly according to my direction. But be sure to put the letters in the post office and trust not your whistling acquaintances. For I expect your immediate answer. St. Jago de la Vigo in Jamaica, May 14, 1716. P.S: I have in my 2 letters to you re….. actions you can make possibly” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ During 1716, Society Hill was once an area filled with merchants of the Free Society of Traders who had offices there, today the area is a historic neighborhood completely paved over with rows of two to four story brick rowhouses. In older maps of the town, there is indeed a location named Cherry Garden alongside the Delaware River. As for who penned the letter, who’d hidden away apparently ill-gotten gains from the Spanish, presumably from the Caribbean, who wrote the letter from Jamaica.. there are of course rumors that exist that this letter is from an active pirate to his brother back home. With speculation that he was concerned his own time in this world was about to run out and made a desperate decision to not let the treasure’s secret die with him, and that he had alluded to it’s existence before to his brother. While the question of who penned the letter exists, the other question to be answered is “did the brother in Philadelphia ever go dig it up or not?”

Early historian John F. Watson, author of “Annals of Philadelphia, And Pennsylvania, in The Olden Time (Volume 2: 1900 Edition)” stated a prevalent belief (and likely folk legend) that “especially near the Delaware & Schuylkill waters, that the pirates of Black Beard’s day had deposited treasure in the earth. The fancy was, that sometimes they killed a prisoner and interred him with it, to make his ghost keep his vigils there and guard it.” (page 32). The document still exists to this day, after being discovered by historian Daniel Rolph in 1996, and resides safely in the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. According to Rolph, the drawbridge and creek running along Dock street are included in old maps, and by the 1680s some three decades before the letter was written, many brick houses were being constructed in the area. “I get the impression the treasure had to have been buried many years before, as by 1716 it was built up along the docks all down that area.”

Professional treasure hunter Dennis Parada of Clearfield PA claims that he has pinpointed the location where the chest should be at one of two locations, but the problem is legal issues concerning treasure hunting in Philadelphia with concerns over who would own the treasure if unearthed. (Pictured is a high resolution scan of the 1716 letter regarding the buried treasure, and a 1680 map of Philadelphia by cartographer Thomas Holme where the mentioned bridge can be seen in the bottom-right)

And not only that, the treasure was buried just a few blocks ahead on the beach.

“Burglar’s Loot Found At Montreal,” Toronto Globe. June 17, 1911. Page 01. ---- ACCIDENTAL DISCOVERY OF BURIED TREASURE STOLEN FROM CHURCHES. ---- (Canadian Press Despatch.) Montreal, June 16. - The chance discovery of a veritable treasure trove of gold and silver articles on Mount Royal has given the police a clue to the perpetrators of many church robberies which have occurred during the past few years and which ceased suddenly only a short time ago.
A gardener in the employ of the park authorities, running to seek shelter beneath a tree during yesterday’s storm, tripped over something protruding from the ground, and unearthed a large piece of solid silver. Digging farther he found more silver and several articles in gold. These he took to Father Walsh of St. Michael’s Church, who identified two of the articles as sacred vessels used during the celebration of the Holy Communion. The police suspect three young men now in the penitentiary for burglary, who used to live within a hundred and fifty yards of the place. The robberies ceased as soon as they were convicted.

Lemme tell ye a story of a bumbling aristocrat turned to more bumbling pirate. Ol' Stede Bonnet, to be pronounced Bõn-ay, of French decent, be a land owner after his father had died and left it to 'im. His wife had died and life was doin' none too well but 'is pocketbook were and so he decided to build a sloop and head for the high seas in search of adventure, foolin' everyone into thinkin' he were goin' privateerin'. His ship was Christened the Revenge, leadin' somes to believe that he were a Jacobite by nature. He headed for the North American east coast and captured a ship, his first prize had a Cap'n aboard who recognized 'ol Bonnet who were callin' 'imself Cap'n Thomas. The crew of the Revenge knew they couldn't catch no big prizes with their sloop and they soon fell in with Edward Teach, 'ol Blackbeard 'imself, what sent his own man aboard to ensure orders were followed. Teach's man reported back that Sted Bonnet were no seaman let alone a Capt'n so Blackbeard brought 'im aboard Queen Anne's Revenge and told 'im that due to wounds he received in a fight with a Spanish Man-Of-War that nearly cost him his life that he could rest easy aboard the the frigate, enjoyin' the life of a pirate in luxury while he recovered. He would appear on deck ever so often in a night gown and look around but Blackbeard would shoo him back into quarters after a short while sayin' he needed rest. Bonnet's Revenge aided in the takin' of tons of plunder and booty, and was even present at the sackin' of Charleston, South Carolina. After Blackbeard run his Ship ashore near Beaufort's Inlet he returned the Revenge to the now recovered Bonnet and sent 'em on their way, but not before strandin' half the crew on the beach. Bonnet told em he'd be back to retrieve 'em but he had to run to port first where he cowardly accepted the king's pardon. After, he returned and retrieved his crew he then rechristened the Revenge to the Royal James. Soon, the newly pardoned capt'n was a needin' supplies and 'is crew was thinkin' they was needin' a new Capt'n so they began capturin' prizes yet again, but to keep from losin' their new pardon they traded a penance of goods for the supplies they took. It weren't long though afore the crew pressed 'ol "Capt'n Thomas" back into piracy again. 
The Royal James and two other prize sloops were careened at Cape Fear River when two ships, commissioned by the South Carolina governor Robert Johnson to hunt down the pirates, began approaching. Colonel Rhett approached the Royal James with two eight gun sloops and 130 militiamen. Thinkin' they was merchant men Bonnet sent two longboats to capture 'em. One of Rhett's sloops, the Henry, ran aground an outta reach of the pirates. Night soon fell upon 'em and Bonnet had 'is 46 men that were spread among 'is three ships, all brought aboard the Royal James. He penned a letter ta that there governor Johnson and threatened ta burn all the ships in the Charles Town harbor. Now, 'Ol Stede Bonnet knew that the night tide would come in and lift the Henry from the bank so he decided to fight 'is way through the colonel's blockade come mornin'.
At daybreak on the morning of September 27,  1718, the Royal James repelled boarders against them pirate hunters but she run aground along with the Henry. The Sea Nymph had tried to come around 'Ol Bonnet but too got caught on the banks an too far away ta do any fighting against the Royal James. The Henry be the only one within range, but beached with her deck keeled toward the Royal James left the crew and men vulnerable to musket fire. Bonnet's sloop was keeled away from the Henry providing good cover for his men. Yet again, fortune and luck played no hand in Bonnet's career as a pirate. Even with the upper hand with cover his men were bad shots with the muskets, killing only 10 men and wounding 14 of Rhett's men while losing 12 of his own pirate crew. It would be a standoff for the next five hours then with them pirates fightin' valiantly and tauntin' the crews of Rhett's sloops. The tides then rose enough to free the Henry and the Sea Nymph from the shore line's sandy embrace and they began sailing toward the Royal James. Outnumbered three ta one Bonnet ordered his gunner, George Ross, ta blow up their magazine, but the crew belayed the order and Colonel Rhett accepted their surrender.
Back in Charles Town, Bonnet had been kept separate from 'is crew and stayed at the town marshal's home with 'is boatswain and master gunner. On the 24th of October Bonnet escaped but lackin' any manner of luck at all he was soon caught up to and surrendered and thrown in ta prison. The townsfolk rioted in protest of the sentence and nearly burned the town. His own boatswain, Ignatius Pell, had turned king's evidence and testified against 'Ol Bonnet, sealin' his fate if it were to be hanged by the neck until dead. He wrote to 'is esteemed colleagues he had known from his days in the aristocracy, but theys cuttin' ties with Bonnet only laid validation to the sentence. Magistrate Trott delayed the execution, almost as if to give Bonnet time ta find a friend who would stay the hangin' entirely, but on December 10th he finally swung from them gallows at White Point Garden where some say you can see his ghostly figure hauntin' them grounds ta this day. Lookin' in the water of the harbor you will sometimes see the faces of them that's been hanged there stare back at you. You might even see the face of Stede Bonnet, the Gentleman Pirate.

Waves crash at my feet, leaving a small sigh. Sea foam brushing past, saying hello and goodbye.
I’ll throw what you mean to me in. Buried treasure is harder to find.
I’ve charted a map of where I’ve been. Made from drawings and porcelain.
I used to be so distracted. Broken apart, improperly manufactured. That doesn’t matter to me, because I’m here, and I’m now.
I’m sorry you never cared as much as me. Perhaps I’m better as a pirate out at sea.

Buried Treasure: Kingdom - We Are #KINGDOM #킹덤 #WeAre #BlackCrown #블랙크라운
A K-pop act’s title track isn’t always the best song on their album, even if it’s the one most people will hear. Sometimes, b-sides deserve recognition too. In the singles-oriented world of K-pop, I want to spotlight some of these buried treasures and give them the props they deserve. Kingdom are slowly proving themselves kings of b-sides. I haven’t liked either of their two past title tracks,…
