    The clue was AXYDLBAAXR for LONGFELLOW. Your answer is correct, but the letters don’t match. I’m new to crypto’s. What am I missing?

    Bg,

    That’s NOT a clue. It’s more an example of what it takes to solve these. The Cryptoquote does not provide any clues, just the letter groupings and some punctuation. There are numerous little tricks to solving these. The single letter words are most likely going to be A or I. The letter E is often the last letter, and sometimes the second letter. Looking for letter groupings that could spell words like: NEVER, ALWAYS, PEOPLE and THAT, etc. is also helpful. Apostrophes are helpful. Double letters can be helpful. The author name GEORGE is also helpful. These are just a few things to look for when you do them. Some are harder than others, but don’t be intimidated. Save the newspaper from day to day, so you can compare the Yesterday’s Cryptoquote answer to yesterday’s puzzle. It might take you a little time, but you’ll get the hang of it. And, if not, there’s always the Jumble!
