Jenny's aunt recently passed away. In her will it said that there was a treasure for Jenny, if she could figure out the directions. Jenny's aunt was a great scholar and she loved a good teaser. In the directions she wrote:

My dear Jenny,

To find the treasure that I have left you, you just have to follow some instructions that I have for you. please do exactly everything that I tell you to and you will find the trasure. It will be wrapped tightly in a small packagge ready for you. I trust you, because I know that you are very intelliggent and you will find it for sure. Even if you don't find it, I know that you would have at least tryed. I know that its really hard for you to figure thiss letter out, but do try. The pakage will be waiting for you there. You have been wonderful person to be vith. So, keep trying and you will find that treasure!

Sincerly,
Your Aunt



Answer

The treasure was in a place called Peggy's Cave. Jenny's aunt, as mentioned before was a great scholar, so she wouldn't have made all those mistakes in her writing. All the spelling and grammatical mistakes put together will spell Peggy's Cave.

...for you. please... (P)
...find the trasure... (e)
...a small packagge... (g)
...very intelliggent... (g)
...at least tryed... (y)

This is like the letter in the 3rd "Series of Unfortunate Events" book. I'm guessing you read the book and redid the riddle.

Great one! I knew it had something to do with the spelling and grammer or it wouldn't have been accepted.

I enjoyed this one. I almost went through and corected all the misspelled words until I realized it would have long been corrected and started re-reading.

Great one!! I knew it had something to do with grammar. When I was writing it down I got distracted by my 24inch plasma flatscreen and didnt write it down properly. Devan Blue NY
