    Hello PrincessBell.

    I am very sorry, but who wrote this? Some words look okay but some look like a total mess. It is written with some very weird English mode, but some of the letters used are very fishy: using the same symbol to refer to /k/ and /ch/, the illogical use of long vowels in the first word and generally, the vowels are all over the place. It must be some alternative English mode that I either simply never heard of (if that's the case, I apologise), or some wonky homemade attempt. Quick Google search for "tengwar english mode" gives all sorts of different tables saying which symbol represents which sound, but I found nothing to apply to this text.
    Some general sense can be made out, but some words I couldn't figure out what in the devils they are supposed to be, so I just transcribed them as they are. Maybe you can figure it out if you know the general gist of the puzzle.

    EDIT: the ?uistoin is probably question, stupid me.
