What does this message say?

    $\begingroup$ is it pigpen cipher? $\endgroup$ – smriti Jul 5 '16 at 12:25
  • $\begingroup$ yep, pigpen cipher $\endgroup$ – Sid Jul 5 '16 at 12:31

Quick guess:

Start by taking a Pigpen cipher, to get Njwj jwtr jrtx jpnq in wnx jxfjqu.
A Caesar cipher with key 21 yields Iere erom emos ekil di ris esaelp.
Read backwards and with proper punctuation, it says 'Please sir, I'd like some more - Erei'.

  • $\begingroup$ maybe that last word $\endgroup$ – Adit Kirtani Jul 5 '16 at 12:34

    $\begingroup$ Erei is a strange name given the reference, agreed. $\endgroup$ – yuzuki Jul 5 '16 at 12:35
