Letters of Note: Iorz feixfuli, M. J. Yilz

In January of 1971, a gentleman named M. J. Shields wrote the wonderful letter seen below to The Economist, on the subject of spelling reform — an idea famously championed by George Bernard Shaw, who even funded, posthumously, the development of a new alphabet.

It’s a brilliant, amusing letter and one which I have, I think, managed to accurately “decode.” That translation can be found after the original.
