Fortification by Subtraction

I've obtained, without a warrant, evidence of a spelling error. My search was not judicially sanctioned, but I'm going to proceed. I believe I have a strong case to make a Forth amendment.

The sentence's 16th word has an extra letter, which makes the wait for Worth not worth the wait. An h has eluded the troops, waded the moat, trudged through the ditch and scaled the rampart. Yes, an enemy has infiltrated the Fort.

My criticism is forthright: Forth's wrong. Remove Forth's fifth letter and Fort's coming is forthcoming.
