These are the sixteen letters that appear in the
the words
ZERO, ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN,
EIGHT, NINE, TEN, ELEVEN.

Using these same 16 letters, we can continue
spelling TWELVE through NINETEEN.

We can't spell TWENTY. Y not? Because there's not a Y.

Stan, I expected you to get it. The clues were one and 16. By saying there were two clues, the number two actually becomes no 3 clue and so on. Well done mate.

I left out twenty on purpose. The idea was to use 16 letters to make up numbers one to sixteen. One of these days Stan we are going to stump you.
