Yes, I think that makes sense now. So you are saying the same as @fgrieu in this comment above? So one can't recover the entire plain text, but will be able to recover some.

@rath: I am not sure that I understand. So in a sense the key consists of $sigma_1, \dots , \sigma_n$. It is assumed that these permutations are constructed randomly first.
