That's a good point, we've been forgetting that this is cryptography, and so possibly the entire set is the message. The title "Letters to Numbers," however, would seem to imply that instead it is simply the substitution code, like people have been thinking.
And if it was a message, it still would seem to be impossible. There are absolutely no hooks to help the decryption, and you could insert virtually any message you want, since everything is different.
Another hint, perhaps?
