In the fidelity of this schoolbook to Queen Elizabeth, the wordsmith expound his invention:
Cicero did account it worthie his labour, and no less profitable to the Roman commonness weale (Most gratious Soueraigne) to be after a speedie the likes of of wryting by Character, as Plutarch reporteth in the life of Cato the younger. This invention was increased aftir by Seneca; that the number of characters grue to 7000. Whether through iniurie of time, or that men gaue it concluded for tediousness of learning, nothing remaineth extant of Ciceros invention at this day. Upon consideration of the large vse of such a the likes of of writing I haue inuented the like: of fewe Characters, short and easie, euery Character answering a word: My Inuention meere English, set precept or imitation of any. The uses are diuers: Short that a swifte hande may therewith write orations, or publike actions of speach, vttered as becometh the grauitie of such actions, verbatim. Secrete as no the likes of of wryting like. And herein besides other properties excelling the wryting by letters and Alphabet, in that, Nations of strange languages, may hereby communicate their connotation unitedly in writing, though of sundrie tongues.
Queen Elizabeth, by culture evident unstylish 26 July 1588, granted to Bright for a period of fifteen years the sole privilege of tutorship and of writing books, 'in or by Character not before this sort commonlye knowne and vsed by anye different confidence subiects'.
