 Bartender to his apprentice: (Posted on 2013-03-26)
"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.

W1=HIS, W2=JOE, W3=GET, W4=AGE
1. A=1,E=3,G=7,H=4,I=5, J=2, O=8, S=6, T=9
2. A=1,E=4,G=9,H=5,I=6, J=3, O=7, S=8, T=2

W1=HIS, W2=AGE, W3=GET, W4=JOE
1. A=1,E=4,G=7,H=5,I=6, J=3, O=9, S=8, T=2

(appended, as pointed out missing by Charlie)
W1=GET, W2=JOE, W3=HIS, W4=AGE
1. A=1,E=2,G=5,H=8,I=9, J=3, O=7, S=6, T=4
