Vyse's Victorian book on spelling starts with the fundamentals of recognising letters and letter combinations and moves to words steadily increasing in syllables but neatly group as to where the stress or accent falls. There are lists of words, places, and people, and this is interpersed with Vyse's lessons. Numbering over 100 they are derived from various sources including the bible, and give moral maxims in verse and rhyme on such topics as this mortal life and the hereafter, one's station in society, and how to conduct oneself agreeably (and obediently) in various circumstances (in church, before equals, before elders, at table etc.). The last section of the book gives advice on to young men who are making their first entrance into the world.
