American Spelling Book

This was evidently a classic publication for teaching spelling. Originally published in 1788, the source for this edition was 1824, and we have evidence from the Adkisson ledger (one of the ledgers transcribed in Historic Accounts) that it was still being sold in the late 1850's -- a time span of more than 60 years. Besides spelling, the book contains guidance for pronunciation, discussions of units of measure, an abundance of short segments which impart lessons in morals, a few Aesop's fable, and concluding with "A Moral Catechism."

Since school books like this one never went out of date, it could easily have been found on the desk of a child even in the 1860's.
