Codes and Symbols

Noah John Rondeau was always writing. He kept a daily diary and also wrote letters to many people. After a few years of writing in his diary, Noah created a special code to use for his daily entries. He also used special symbols in many of the letters he sent to people. You can see an example of a letter here and diary pages below.
