First standard-phonographic reade

Andrew J.Graham,  First standard-phonographic reade,  New York, Andrew J. Graham, 1860, p. 51.

These worms are exposed to the ravages of birds and fishes, and hence they glue together small bits of wood and straw to make a house for shelter ; and when the frail castle is too buoyant, they add a piece of gravels to preserve the balance, in order that the castle shall not be burdensome nor too buoyant.
