Cleaning the church in the evening, on one of the seats I've found a strange envelope, which happened to be addressed to me. It was labeled as "Important religious question". Intrigued, I unlocked an envelope, only to find some strange number sequence inside.
I believe, the question is of utter importance. Probably, even heretical, as the author decided to use a cipher. But what can a poor priest do in such situation?
What's worse -- even if I found out the answer I'd still have to find the author to tell him the answer. Judging by the place where I've found the letter, there were five candidates on having written it:
Herbert Oldy-Moldy, local farmer.
Teresa Ascot-Aspen, local egg-dealer
Riley Fiddle-Diddle, popular writer on vacation
Angus Lonley-Lockly, my right-hand-man at church
Nicholas Blood-n-Guts, local butcher.
(I made it a spoiler, because it does not help to decrypt the message).
Thus, I'm in need of:
An answer to encrypted question.
A person, who is certain to have asked it.
