Excerpt from A Short-Hand, Legible as the Plainest Writing, and Requiring No Teacher but the Book: With a Simplified System of Verbatim Reporting

The size of the letters is, as in other writing. A matter of taste; provided they are all made smaller or larger, and preserve their due proportion to one another. A good length for t is about the eighth of an inch then the longs. When put on the same line, will be as high; the double lengilu twice as high, and the shorts not more than half as high as that Ch.

Tables, showing the combination of every two Chs would have served instead of all the rules for joining them, and made the system appear more simple. But such tables are expensive, and it is better for a practitioner to learn by copying the Exercises.

In the second part, numerous rules and devices will be given for abbreviating, not because such contractions are more necessary in this system than any other but in order to furnish the learner who may be disposed to try them with those which have been found to secure the greatest expedition of which the art in its present state is capable.
