    they wrote in so called american english-phonetically.
    Benjamin Franklin, who was also a publisher, eliminated the letter "U" from words like 'flavor, humor, color, harbor, etc. The Brits and the Commonwealth nations still use it. Franklin said it saved time and print especially in his time and era.
