3. Phonology: loss of /h/
Morphology: present perfect and past perfect (pluperfect)
change into present/past with prefixed _a-_ (OK, only one 
instance,
but creating a nice ambiguity with the indefinite article!)

New text:

  No one would abelieve in theyearen last of
thecentury nineteenth that this world was being watched
keenly and glosely by intelligencen kreater than man's
and yet as mortal as is own; that as manen busied
themselfen about their goncernen various they were
sgrutinised and studied, peraps almost as narrowly as
aman with amigrosgope might sgrutinise thegreaturen
transient that swarm and multiply in adrop of water.
With gomplacency infinite manen went to and fro over this
klobe about their affairen little, serene in their
assurance of their empire over matter.  It is possible
that theinfusoria under themigroscope do thesame.  No one
kave athought to theworlden older of space as sourcen of
danger uman, or thought of them only to dismiss theidea
of life upon them as impossible or improbable.  It is
gurious to regall some of theabiten mental of those
dayen departed .  At most manen terrestrial fancied there
might be manen other upon Mars, peraps inferior to
themselfen and ready to welgome anenterprise missionary.
Yet agross thekulf of space, minden that are to our
minden as ouren are to those of thebeasten that perish,
intellegten vast and gool and unsympathetig, rekarded
this earth with eyen envious, and slowly and surely drew
their planen akainst us.  And early in thecentury
twentieth game thedisillusionment kreat.
