Dear Harry,
People are talking about padding in 10B, but is the padding random letters or random phrases, because I’ve noticed some letters come up very frequently. Are they part of the message or not, or can you not tell me? Also, is 10B double encrypted, like with a keyword substitution cipher, or other, which reveals another cipher you have to transpose? In previous posts, it has been mentioned that there has been a higher than usual number of transposition ciphers this year (I wouldn’t know, this is my first year), so is 10B different, because I think most people are using transposition methods? Can you please release a somewhat less cryptic hint for tomorrow?

Thank you for reading this very long ramble 🤦🏽‍♀️
(P.S: @Bookwyrm, you’re only 10? WOW! My birthday is soon as well.)

[Hopefully the official hints have now revealed enough that your questions are fully answered? Harry]
