Here's a stab at it:

"This sentence contains TWENTY-THREE words, THIRTY-NINE syllables, ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE letters, TWENTY spaces, THREE hyphens, SIX commas, and ONE period."

PS: Writersblock, you missed a tiny little thing in your assumption I think. (Spaces)

"ONE HUNDRED AND TEN" is not standard.

 

If that number, 110, were correct as a for instance, then it must be written as "one hundred ten." 

 

With this correction, this will naturally change the answer in the solution.

 

Also, post # 12 is missing the count of the number of hyphens.
