It's because I am lazy enough that I took all of these from a single excellent review article on the subject written in the late 1970s. As far as I know, the research since then has confirmed the same points.

Fixed the typo, and thank you, but I find the mental processes generating it interesting. I used "two" instead of "to" right before the number "one" - my guess is that my being about to write "one" semantically primed my concept of "number", making me write "to" as "two". If I could think of a way to search, I'd love to see how many of the same two/to error on the Internet occur right around mention of a number.
