Abstract

The discovery by Ronnie B. Kon, which he reported in the Nov. 2010 Word Ways, of an earlier, different version of Faith Eckler's refractory "1831" riddle constitutes a breakthrough, I believe, in the decades-old effort to deduce a convincing answer to this stumper. Whereas before, this riddle had seemed (to me, at least) to be intractably baffling, now, suddenly, a satisactorily suasive solution to it is discernable.
