two, fiat six, fiat seven, &.; but, vien naming them by letters, C sharp,

* The author hinks thi European system of not changing the vowel sounds in
the chromnti 
scale, far prefers le t .,e practice so nmeh in vogue in this c:untry, as
many bad habits arise thal 
require much awer p,  'tce and instruction to eradicate. Those who choose,
however, can stil 
use the old plar,, by sit ply changing the vowel sound of the syliable j
ascending, to E, wkeaevel 
a sharp occuis-ind to A, in descending, whenever a fiat i used.
