The Autobiography of Thomas Whythorne

APPENDIX IV
TWO DELETIONS (see page 5)

The first deletion seems to be a simple cancellation:

As he doth vse the .k. in stead of .c. in this word .consonant. as thus .konsonant. As he doth vse the .s. for .t. in this word .derivation. as thus .derivasion.

Whythorne's purpose in cancelling this passage is not clear, for he followed Hart in these points.

The second deletion is substantial, running to six and a half lines. The material deleted is identical with a passage that occurs lower on the page, where Whythorne makes the transition from orthography to begin the account of his childhood. (Printed as the middle paragraph on page 6: 'I hạv sumwhat degressed . . . þe songs and sonets foloing.')

This mistake argues strongly that Whythorne was copying the account of his 'new orthografye' from an earlier draft.
