The ordinarv solver of a letter or doenmeet in secret writing should re-J metnber that success in this direction, as regards aimost every kind of cxypto pram. depends to a grat extent upon tte knowierlse of how otfn each indi vidual letter cf th alphabet is b?H in ordinary speech or correspondence. P. h. o. c and ti ar in third place as regards ordinary use: t, s, a, 1 and r are in second place, being used a very little oftener; and I and m are in fourth place, w ith f. g, y, v, p and b close aft erward; j and k are not common as compared with the rest, while z, q and x are used least of all. The letter e is in first place, being used far oftener than any other letter in the English language, and once the "e" is found and the letters that hold second place discovered in their pro per order, the solution is certain.
