The student will find no difficulty in learning the Sovereigns of England, after an examination of the Sovereigns of France, and the preceding Instructions. The second Nomenclature Table, which follows, on page 143, is on nearly the same plan of Nomenclature Table No. 1. There is, however, this difference. While the Table No. 1 is a simple Table, each word translating to the exact number that it represents, the words in Table No. 2, all have more articulations than are needed to make the correct number. To find the number that each word is intended to represent, in this Table, we must translate the first two articulations only, and let all the other articulations go. For example, we will take the words Swamp and Orator. The first two articulations in Swamp, are se, me, standing for 0, 3, showing the word to be No. 3. The first two articulations in Orator, are re, te, giving 41 as the number of the word. The first nine words in the Table are zero words, or words standing first for a zero or cipher, and then the next articulation represents the number. All the words following the ninth one, have three or more articulations, but only the first two are to be taken. This difference between the two Nomenclature Tables was made, that the learner might be able to tell the words of one from those of the other, and not get them confused. There being kings of the same name in the lines of French and English Sovereigns, two distinct Nomenclature Tables were necessary for learning them.

The Homophonic Analogies for the English Sovereigns are on the same plan as the French, and will be readily understood after an examination of the latter in connection with the preceding Instructions. The formulas for the English Sovereigns differ from the French in having one or two ar ticulations in each formula after the first fifteen, to represent the number of the Dynasty. It can be remembered that the first fifteen Sovereigns belong to Dynasty No. 1. All the formulas after the first fifteen, translate regularly, first to the date of the reign, the next two articulations for the number of years the reign continued, and all that remain for the number of the Dynasty.

Armor in time of war, will protect a LAZY QUEEN, Idle Life or a War Life. In the above formula, the Nomenclature word Armor, shows the Sovereign to be the 43rd., from re, me, the first two articulations. The Homophonic Analogy, LAZY QUEEN, shows the Sovereign to be QUEEN ELIZABETH, and Idle Life or War Life, gives us de, le, le, fe, 1558, for the commencement of the reign, re, le, 45, for the number of years the reign continued, and fe, 8, for the number of the Dynasty. The student must learn in the Table of Sovereigns on pages 144 and 145, that the first Dynasty was the house of Old Saxon Kings, the second Dynasty the Danish Kings, and so on through the eleven Dynasties. The student must commit thoroughly to memory the second Nomenclature Table, at least as high as 56 or 60. This is indispensable in learning the English Sovereigns. The whole Table, from 1 to 100, can be used in the same manner as the first Table, in learning names, figures, &c. These Nomenclature Tables are very important, being the sources of a large amount of instruction, as well as amusement.

In the formulas for the settlement of the States, on page 153, the last two figures of the date only are given, leaving the century to be supplied by the learner.
