Hint 1

Translating the text on this card will give you a clue on how to proceed.

Hint 2

These balloons sure are colorful compared to the rest of this card.

Hint 3

If it's not making sense, you may be in the wrong language.

Hint 4

What are all of those colors names in French?

Solution

Final Solution: In French, these are the colors in order: Jaune (yellow), Orange (orange), Noir (black), Bleu (blue), Jaune (yellow), Orange (orange), Rouge (red), Noir (black). The first letter of each of these colors makes the name, "Jon Bjorn"

Hint 1

We provide exact heights here for a reason.

Hint 2

For this classic type of cipher, the numbers are much larger than you'd normally see.

Hint 3

If you've deciphered this, you may still need to do some more translation work.

Solution

Final Solution: Each line is a rotation cipher using the corresponding number from the front of the card (the tower heights) to decipher it. The deciphered message is in French and must be translated to English. The resulting plaintext reads:
(In French): La femme qui m'a reicrute a l'origine etait un agent qui s'appelait "licorne"
(In English): The woman who recruited me originally was an agent called "Unicorn."

Hint 1

The header "Compte sur nous" will point you towards where to start.

Hint 2

There's more than just French present here.

Hint 3

Each word translates to a number in its language.

Hint 4

Each number will give you a letter...

Hint 5

...in the word itself.

Solution

Final Solution: This puzzle is actually a self-referential index, with each number reflecting that letter in itself. For example, the word "fümpfe" means "five" in Pfaelzisch, and the fifth letter of "fümpfe" is "F", so "fümpfe" equals "F".

The plaintext of the message reads: I am in my hometown of Poughkeepsie for perhaps the last time.

Hint 1

Just like the other stamps, this may not be important just yet, and it might make more sense to come back to this later.

Hint 2

Each of these stamps will give you one word.

Hint 3

Remember, most of this card is in another language... and these stamps are too.

Solution

Final Solution: The French words for cat and water are "Chat" and "Eau" which, when put together and sounded out, creates the word "Chateau."
