Misc. Comments

N.B. The 4-shape notation here is Law's own invention - in addition to being printed without staff lines, it differs from the more common 4-shape system that is still in use today (first used in The Easy Instructor) in that the rectangle notehead denotes faw, and the triangle law.
He later revised this so that 7 syllables could be used, by distinguishing three shapes with a dot (looking like a staccato dot), in effect a sort of 7-shape notation.
