      entitled Consideraciones sobre enseñanza de
      la lectura del idioma español, (Considerations on
      teaching how to read the Spanish language), in which
      he censured Pujals' Cartilla (Primer)
      and several other methods. He published a new one
      later on, divided into two parts, for teaching
      how to read briefly, easily and correctly in the
      same language:
            
            Whereas on 7 March 1857, Pujals concluded that
      the last mentioned was a plagiarism of his Progressive
      Primer without any other addition than joining capital
      letters with lower case letters and the letters "h" and "y".
      He filed a claim at the First Instance Court in the
      district of Las Vistillas in this city claiming that,
      pursuant to the law of 10 June 1847, Mr. Tomás Hurtado
      be condemned for the publication he had made as his own,
      of the first and second parts of the New method for teaching
      how to read the native language briefly, easily and correctly:
      that all the copies found of this work should be destroyed,
      and by way of damages,that he should pay another 3,000
      in folio and in 8 of the Progressive Primer,and the legal costs:
      
      
            Whereas Mr. Tomás Hurtado counterclaimed, asking
      that the claim should be dismissed and declared that
      it was not true that he had adopted
