7811$ 721$ , 7211$ 78 ; 6384 51$ 50 5298 7$ 705381 3078 .

Solution Two Corrections (Spoiler) | Comment 1 of 3
Going bottom up, the message is 
"MERRY MARY, MARRY ME; THEN TRY TO TAKE MY MOTHER HOME."

Or at least it would be, if 6384 in the not so clever text were 5384.  That's correction 1.

THINKOARME is
53649 02178

Then THINK*NOT = 53649*405 = 21727845 = ARMAMENT

(Not ARMAMENTS).

The Alphametic in the problem as given is impossible in base 10, as it has 11 different characters.  But it all works out if the S is removed.
