    Based on the above table of English letter usage, we should have 10 to 12 letters "E" in the FF phrase.

      I found this phrase in one of the puzzles of the book:
      "in the waves of change we often find true purpose"

      Does it mean anything to anyone? Is there anything in the book that can relate to that phrase?

        Is this another phrase sourced from Forrest?

              I sincerely hope that this phrase is not another of Forrest's many innocuous phrases, which is of no use. It's giving more work than FF's poem. Aff ...

                            I found four possibles order of puzzle pieces:

                            a) 9 6 3 16 4 15 10 5 14 1 8 11 7 12 13 2
                            b) 8 11 14 1 13 2 7 12 3 16 9 6 10 5 4 15
                            c) 4 6 9 15 14 12 7 1 11 13 2 8 5 3 16 10
                            d) 13 6 3 12 8 15 10 1 11 4 5 14 2 9 16 7

                            ALL use the magic square.

                              You can generate four more if you parse the magic square in column order first instead of row order. (Not saying Jenny would do this, but she could have.)

                                When Linotype machines were in use, the keyboard was arranged by frequency of letter use.



                                Note the white keys on the right...ETAOINSHRDLU are the most commonly used letters.
                                McB's distribution mirrors the linotype keyboard in the 12 most frequently used letters. (U & C switched, but otherwise consistent)

                                (I used to work at the Valley News when they printed the pages of the newspaper with linotype and ETAOINSHRDLU caught my eye in McB's post)
                                That is all.
                                Carry on.
