Cryptograms are messages in substitution code. Break the code to read the message. For example, THE SMART CAT might become FVO QWGDFJGF if F is substituted for T, V or H, O for E, and so on.
Hint: Look for repeat letters: E, T, A, O, N, R and I are the most often used letters. A single letter is usually A or I; OF, IS, and IT are common 2-letter words; THE and AND are common 3 letter words.

Do you prefer to receive a letter or an email?Personally, I love getting a hand written letter or postcard from friends. What are your opinions?
