This English lay is the No.1 Lower shown by Smith, The Printer's Grammar (1755), reprinted Gregg (1965). It is followed by Luckombe (1771) and (as being upon the old plan) by Johnson (1824), apart from the ' replacing ç and j replacing ' and ffi replacing ffl and fli replacing j and ffl replacing hair spaces and q and , swapping positions. The Smith Upper is the companion Upper lay.
