Person-of-Mystery


Welcome to Cipher Saturday!
It’s my birthday today, so I may take a holiday and be off the computer, but my gift to you is a new mystery to solve.  If you recognize the stylized picture of the person, you can go ahead and guess who it is or if you think you know, you can crack the cipher for bonus points if you can identify the person in the riddle.

The riddle might help you solve the picture or the picture may help you crack the rhyme.
Today’s cipher:
26 24 11     23 24 6     22 25 10 15     7 25     1 10 23 1     10     3 24 12
6 9 3 25 1 1     14 12 1     7 25     11 26 24 1     5 25 14 9 19     12 10 6 19 26 12
8 22 25 25     12 24     22 25 8 3 25 2 12     24 9     15 10 23 1     19 24 9 25     5 23
8 22 25 25     12 24    2 26 10 9 19 25     24 22     10 12     3 25 10 1 12     12 24     12 22 23
10     5 25 12 12 25 22     7 10 9     14     26 24 4 25     12 24     5 25
7 24 22 9 14 9 19     11 10 17 25 1     10     5 22 10 9 15     9 25 11     7 25
Here are a few to start you off:  C=2 / D=15 / H=26 / J=13

So, who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.

It looks like Charles Dickens

By the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY. How old are you now 62? LOL

Nate Maas said...

Good job, Ray and you too Roger. Next week, I'll have to make it harder. Somedays I feel like 62, but today I'm 40!

Anyone up for cracking the cypher?

And a Happy Birthday to you Nate.

I got the cypher!
How you read me says a lot
Unless it's me who's being taught
Free to reflect on days gone by
Free to change or at least to try
A better man I hope to be
Morning wakes a brand new me

WHEEE~ OK. Now I'm going to see who said it...
And Happy Birthday, Nate

Judi said...

Oh, cow....I have to give my husband credit. We sweated together to decipher it. I got so excited that I ran to the computer & forgot him

Nate Maas said...

Way to go, Judi and almost forgotten husband! Now any one want to guess who the rhyme is describing?

Judi said...

Ebenezer Scrooge?

Judi said...

This one was great fun. Don't make it any harder, Nate. It took 3 of us to get the whole thing.

Happy birthday. I feel somewhat accomplished as I did get the cypher decoded. Too late, but done.

LindaBSend said...

Happy Birthday to you Nate!!! I love your blog and read it everyday! Hope your year is a good one!

Nate Maas said...

Thanks for the well-wishes everyone! The cypher was about Ebenezer Scrooge and if you look at the first letter of each line it spelled Huffam, one of Dicken's middle names.

Well done Judi, and husband too.

I actually got about 3/4 of the cipher. Judi got all the given letters. LOL
The forgotten husband.

Happy birthday Nate. Unfortunately I seem to be on the wrong side of the world for these - by the time I get up in the morning, it's all over, and too late for me to claim I got it straight away.

Congratulations! Like they say, life begins at 40 ...
