(I had to look up “jollity”, to see if it was listed as archaic.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t.  I don’t think I’ve ever heard the word used before.  Must be a Brit thing.  But, it was the word “crowds” that was solved last.  These two words made this a challenging solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

SITNIS  =  INSIST,  NANCNO  =  CANNON,  TUNRAT  =  TRUANT,  GERTER  =  REGRET,  SAUDEP  =  PAUSED,  GAUTOE  =  OUTAGE   —   Giving us:  ITCNNRNTEETASEOT
