Been wrestling with this one for hours!!

I'm not that familiar with ciphers so veen doing some reading online, but this doesn't seem to follow any of those patterns.

I've discarded some approaches by numerous attempts and my understanding is that each number correspond to each letter combination on that line and each line contains only one word. It almost seems like it's an anagram and you can make out some words just by discarding some letters on that line. For instance:

The

****

Of

This

Summary

is

Solely ****

However I have no idea how the numbers fit in. I had an idea to write it out and whatever letters matched should be kept in that word. For example:

TRGHEE THIRTY-SEVEN

Only "G" can't be found in 37 and so that is erased giving you the word "three".

Then I tried the idea of putting all the letters in a 8x8 row-column layout, but that idea also crashed and burned. For starters there's only 63 letters.

I've looked into the possibility of prime numbers, but can't seem to find any value of doing this.

I'm curious if 2-digit numbers should be read separately. 37= 3, 7.

guess I need a clue...
