Not illustrated. 1891 edition. Excerpt: ...(2) at the (4) audience. The (5) best time to take the eyes (2) from the book is near the (3) close of a (4) sentence. The (7) period pause will enable the eyes of the reader to (2) return to the page and (3) catch the (1) beginning of the (2) next sentence. 21. Hard Words.
