Encoded messages in the pulps – Adventure and Detective Story Magazine

Came across this, and thought you might find it interesting.

Encrypted messages exchanged in Detective Story Magazine, solution was found and is in the comments on the blog.
Around 1920, a US pulp magazine published an encrypted message exchange in its “missed persons” column. The cleartexts might refer to a familiy drama. Even two of the world’s greatest codebreakers apparently could not make sense of these cryptograms.

Another encrypted message here, this time in Adventure, July 1934

In 1934, a US magazine published an encrypted message a reader had found in an old document. The solution is not known to me.
