The puzzle solution....

One of my readers solved the "puzzle" that I sent out recently. It
was Lewis Jones of London. To those of you who might have some
curiosity about it....

The key was in "new" and "ideal" and "Daniel." Daniel was Webster,
and the second edition of the Webster Dictionary using those words in
the title. Then there were page and column numbers, leading to
specific words:

MAJOR QUA DRO INVESTIGATION UNDER WAY BY FBI FOR ECOMOMIC FRAUD

I couldn't reveal this fact at that time, but now the trap has been
sprung and the arrests have been made.
