The composite cofactor of the RSA public key factored into 91-digit and 97-digit prime numbers. With these factors, we are able to decrypt the RSA-encrypted literary quote. What quote did Donald Knuth hide so well?

His remarks (as reported) were as follows:--
"O Rowty-owty tiddly-owty
Tiddly-owty tiddly-owty
Highty-ighty tiddly-ighty
Tiddly-ighty ow."

--G. K. Chesterton (1905)

This is from The Tremendous Adventures of Major Brown, the first in the collection of short stories The Club of Queer Trades.
