Excerpt from The Shorthand Writer, 1886, Vol. 5: A Monthly Magazine Devoted to the Interests of Takigrafy and Its Writers
In this book the modern method of teaching is applied to Shorthand. You learn in the only natural way, by imitation, from a series of care fully graded and arranged Reading, Writing and Dictation Lessons, covering all the common words and frases of the language. All the words and frases are given in their correct shorthand form. Each Lesson introduces one or more prin ciples of writing or contraction. You master these principles by drilling upon the words il lustrating them.
The most important thing in the practical mas tery of shorthand is persistent drill from dicta tion upon all the words you will use, in their cor rect form, until they can be written Swiftly and without hesitation. The Amanuensis furnish es this facility in the most perfect manner.
