Wrong! It was 12 friends. In an old article from 1897 it was mentioned "Considering the absence of one of the original letters used for the prank, the uncertainty considering the number of recipients (one with the Archdeacon, 12 with the nobles, I found a few references about 5 letters, etc...) as well as the sole appearance of the prank in an article listing jokes, it appears it was already considered an urban legend even back then"
