Secret Message

Jenny’s aunt recently passed away. In her will it said that there was a treasure for Jenny, if she could figure out the directions. Jenny’s aunt was a great scholar and she loved a good teaser. In the directions she wrote:

My dear Jenny,

It will be wrapped tightly in a small packagge ready for you. I trust you, because I know that you are very intelliggent and you will find it for sure.

    Looking at the spelling errors give you the answer.
    P- you. please do….
    E- treasure
    G- packagge
    G- intelliggent
    Y- tryed
    S- thiss
    C- pakage
    v- vith
    I think you are missing other lines in the letter, cause it looks like the answer should be Peggy’s Cove

  • Dude

    Very close, Boesner. Look again, all the clues are there.

  • Boesner

    Ahh, yes yes, got it
    Peggy’s cave
    A- been a wonderful…
    E- Sincerly

  • Dude

    Correct Boesner.

    The treasure was in a place called Peggy’s Cave. Jenny’s aunt, as mentioned before was a great scholar, so she wouldn’t have made all those mistakes in her writing. All the spelling and grammatical mistakes put together will spell Peggy’s Cave.
