EXCERPT:

What I read was only the most hopeless jumble of letters that was ever shaken up in a hat. Here it is:

Job. DREVICIOPEDMOOMSMVIVLISLCAV IBASBATAOVT

St John. RDIIEAMRLESIPVSPODSEEIRSETTA AESGIAVNNR

Zechariah. FTEEAILNQDPVAIVMTLEEATTOHIOO NVMCAAT.H.Q.E.

‘Blank as I felt and must have looked for the first few minutes, my disappointment didn’t last long. I realized almost at once that I was dealing with a cipher or cryptogram; and I reflected that it was likely to be of a pretty simple kind, considering its early date.
