In the above sentence the letter "E" represents a certain digit.
Other letters replace other digits, distinct from the digit assigned to E, but not as one-to-one function.

1. Find a solution (not necessarily mine).

Bonus
2. Devise a sentence that is more sensible or relevant for the above multiplication sample, but retains the value held by the letter "E"{or a corresponding letter in your solution} in same positions as in my original text.

Ill stop at 3 solutions.

There are 36 possibilities for lEt*E = mElt, where the E is constant but the other letters are not (but none have the value of E.)

Of the 6 possibilities with E=2, three of them work:
624*442=1248+2496+2496=275808
627*442=1254+2508+2508=277134
629*442=1258+2516+2516=278018
