Here is an arrangement of 19 cards. What card should go in the bottom right corner?

```4♣  4♠  3♦  3♥   2♥
9♠  7♦  6♥  2♣   4♥
8♦  4♥  5♠  A♣   7♦
6♥  3♠  2♣  8♦   ? ```

This may (correctly) lead you to believe that each end card is a function of the previous 4 cards. You may also notice that these 4 previous cards contain one of each suit. If you arrange the first 4 cards in alphabetical order of suits (which is the order in which the title appears), you will get a 4-digit number. This is a puzzle ID number for a puzzle on perplexus. If you are viewing a puzzle, the address will be: http://perplexus.info/show.php?pid=____ If you replace the ____ with the ID number, you will find that the suit letter of the last card lies at the value's position in the problem text. Here are the four puzzles: 4♣ 3♦ 3♥ 4♠: "The days [...]" 2♥ 2♣ 7♦ 6♥ 9♠: "I'm thinking [...]" 4♥ 1♣ 8♦ 4♥ 5♠: "A palindrome [...]" 7♦ 2♣ 8♦ 6♥ 3♠: "Find the [...]" 4♦ So the answer is 4♦. Title: 4♣ 5♦ A♥ A♠: "Here is [...]" 1♥, or A♥.
