The letters interspersed with (L) and (R) describe a path with left and right turns through a grid. Starting at the top left corner, initially going down, the path looks like the bold outline below. Having filled in that much, the rest of the grid can be filled out--it is the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. The path then continues with alternating numbers and asterisks. The numbers indicate how many spaces to skip over, and the asterisks represent letters in the answer. The red squares are the second part of the path, with answer letters bolded.
