Indexer Notes

Rearrange the letters to spell three other words, change moose to be two other animal words, remove letters to spell parts of the head, find 18 objects that begin with F, a math trick, a law question, add a letter.

Since it is signed twice it may have been intended to be two half-page fillers.
