1895 Excerpt: ... like ch. The stem ch, L 3, is for convenience
called chay. Second--Frequently compare your work with the Plate,
looking closely to Bee if it can be improved In any way. It should
correspond as to shading, straightness of stems, and the nearness
of the signs to each other. In size, the letters may be as small,
and ought not to be much larger than those given in the Plate. The
vowel dot a and dash o should always be placed at the middle of the
stem. Write mostly with a pen; It is superior to a pencil in every

fabl, fable; fotograf, photograph; mikst, mixed; kwil, qui 11.

in sophist, (spelt sotlst). lucopper, (pronounced coper) p occurs
but once. Hence the usual manner of spelling a word has nothing
whatever to do in determining the way to write it in short-hand.
Fourth--Practice on Plate 3 till you can copy it in two minutes.
Compare your work frequently with the engraved characters. Write a
small hand; place your words closely together, speaking them aloud
as you write them. Occasionally read over what you have written.
Three important rules are: first, practice; second, Practice;
third, PRACTICE All beginners write too large. You probably do.
Your characters should be but little, if any, longer than those
shown in the lesson. Some practice with a pencil is useful, but a
pen should be used mostly. L...
