In a previous note (1), we argued that information= ln(Pi), where Pi is the probability for the ith letter in the 26 letter English alphabet to appear in a long message, may be obtained by considering "interactions" which leave Pi unchanged as the initial message undergoes interactions until it reaches a destination. ln(Pi) then naturally appears as a conserved quantity in the interactions which ensure that Pi does not change as one moves from source to destination. Thus, each letter contains a
