BEG = 59            CALL = 48         CHIEF =  36           CRAZY =  60 
DEN = 53            GAME =  47        GUN = 51              HAM = 16
HAVE =  40          IF = 11           JACK = 24             KEY =  43
LAZE = 57           MAP =  28         MOVE = 58             NEON = 86
OXEN = 82           PALM = 47         QUIT = 40             QUITE = 60

1=K, 2=C, 3=H, 4=F, 5=M, 6=Q, 7=I, 8=A, 9=V, 10=Z, 11=T, 12=D, 13=J, 14=G, 15=P, 16=U, 17=X, 18=R, 19=L, 20=E, 21=N, 22=Y, 23=S, 24=O, 25=B, 26=W

First E=20, L=19 & V=9 are evident by substraction, then using this info and further difference M=5, N=21 O=24 similarly their substitution results in remaining all the letters except K which has options of 1 or 5 but only 1 solves all(WK=27,TK=12,JK=14 and YK=23 with remaining numbers) . Further I, F & Q which is solved by IF=11 and QI=13 and numbers remaining are 4,6 and 7
