Answer-Letter ‘E‘ (NOT used even once in the entire portion)

Though not literally “unique“, this ‘(partial) paragraph’ is, to be fair, fairly rare. Rare because the entire paragraph does not feature a single instance of the most-used letter in English. Yes, the letter ‘E‘ is NOT used even once in the entire portion quoted. (However, it’s not “unique” because there are even entire books (not just a short paragraph) in which the letter ‘E’ doesn’t appear even once.)
