Excerpt from Rules Regulations and Premium List of the Fifth Annual Fair, to Be Held by the Aurora Agricultural and Horticultural Society, at Aurora, Illinois, September 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th, 1873
It has been regarded, of late years, almost an absolute impossibility to originate anything new in the field of literature, especially in the line of books; and yet we believe the fact con: ceded, by those who have acquainted themselves with the matter, that Thos. E. Hill, of Aurora, has produced a volume which, in its arrangement and perfection of detail, is unlike any thing hitherto attempted as a book.
Name of the Book. - The title of this work is Hill's Manual of Business Forms and Guide to Correct Writing. While this name is perhaps as good as could be chosen, it does not in the least convey to the reader any adequate idea of the real extent and value of the book. The work must be seen to be appreciated.
A Glance at the contents-to give our readers an idea of the character of this new book we will say that as a Self Instructor in Penmanship, being profuse in illustrations and copies, this volume is the best now before the public. The chapters on Spelling, use of Capi tal Letters and Punctuation are each thoroughly treated, while the rules of Composition are very elaborately considered.
