ist that learning to read is the most difficult of human attainments,
and every school teacher in the land knows it to be true. The cause of
this difficulty is that while there are about forty sounds in the Eng.
lish language which have to be represented, there are but twenty-six

But it seems great use may be made of it in acquiring the ability to read, and spell the old orthography."
