"THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG". is a sentence that contains every letter of the alphabet. ( 35 letters)

" PACK MY BOX WITH FIVE DOZEN LIQUOR JUGS" is another sentence (32 letters)

As far as i am aware there is no perfect sentence that just contains 26 letters, but there may be others that are less than 32.
