Where is this inscription from?

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your
teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed,
to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

(sorry...no prizes!! )

SEQUOIA and EUNOMIA.  If you add Y to the mix it would be FACETIOUSLY.

What is the first number, when written out, that contains the letter A?  

As a bonus:  What is the first number that contains all 5 common vowels?  (exclude Y)

I believe that "One Thousand" (1000) is the first number that contains the letter A when written out.

If above is correct then "One Thousand Five" (1005) would be the first number to contain all vowels when written out.
