Excerpt from Roman Orthoepy: A Plea for the Restoration of the True System of Latin Pronunciation

The author of this little Manual was, from 1838 to 1850, professor of the Latin language and litera ture in Madison University. During the latter part of that period, he became dissatisfied with the English mode of pronouncing Latin, and convinced that a change, at least so far as to substitute the German for the English vowel sounds, would be, intrinsically, a great improvement. But the fancied inconveniences of a change - inconveniences which experience has taught him were greatly exagger ated - together with a strong repugnance to the notoriety of singularity, presented obstacles which his conviction of its inherent advantages was then unable to surmount.
