Bartender to his apprentice: (Posted on 2013-03-26) Difficulty: 4 of 5
"Get the proof of his age, Joe".

Insert the 4 bold words into alphametic equations:

(I) W1+W2=W3
(II) W1-W2=W4

in such an order that there will be a unique set of non-zero digits (each distinct letter representing a distinct digit) fitting as a solution.

Which digits represent the nine letters a,e, ...t?

REM: I've built this puzzle bottom-up, so there might be solutions different from mine - unlikely, but always welcome.

re: No real spoiler -big errors. | Comment 3 of 5 |
(In reply to No real spoiler by brianjn)

Found my earlier comment in error on two counts:
1. I assumed that W1, W2, W3 and W4 were respectively get, his, age and joe.
2. My program listing was written with the above assumption in mind but with TOM and not JOE (see below).
When editing to encompass JOE I made errors.  Recorrection shows that the assumption made in #1 does not have a solution.
