Excerpt from Complete Guide to the Art of Writing Short-Hand: Being an Entirely New and Comprehensive System of Representing the Elementary Sounds of the English Language in Stenographic Characters; By Means of Which, the Exact Words of Any Public Speaker May Be Recorded as Pronounced, and Preserved in a Legible For
The Author of this treatise is exceedingly gratified in being able to present to the public another edition of his work on the Science of Stenography. The extraordinary patronage which he has thankfully received from the literary public, has made it not only the Author's interest but his duty and a pleasure to revise and amend the work. To ensure the permanency of its character the whole has been stereo-typed, so that purchasers may hereafter expect the work only in its present form. The writer has diligently studied to render this science simple and easy of acquirement, and if any thing will add to his satisfaction, it will be to learn that he has succeeded in exciting an interest for and extending the knowledge of a science of such exalted utility. In these pages will be found all that is necessary to make an accomplished stenographer without the aid of an instructor.
As the purchaser of this treatise may probably be led to inquire what are the advantages which the Author claims over the numerous publications that have preceded it on the same subject, he will endeavor to point out in as brief a manner as possible some of the difficulties which have presented themselves to those who have acquired or attempted to acquire proficiency in this pleasing and very useful accomplishment, and the method which he has pursued to avoid them.
