Excerpt from Pitman's Shorthand Writing Exercises and Examination Tests: A Series of Graduated Exercises on Every Rule in the System and Adapted for Use by the Private Student or in Public Classes E It is scarcely necessary to say that this work is not intended to take the place of Pitman's Shorthand Instructor or any of the other text-books of the system. It is supplement ary to those, and the Exercises herein contained will be most correctly written, and with the greatest benefit to the student, if he will take care always to refer to his text-book before commencing to work the Exercises on any rule. Attention to this, and to the brief directions at the head of the Exercises, will enable the student to work through the various sections with few or no mistakes.

John Robert Gregg, (born June 17, 1867, Rockcorry, County Monaghan, Ire.—died Feb. 23, 1948, New York, N.Y., U.S.), Irish-born American inventor of a shorthand system named for him.Gregg developed an interest in speed writing when he was 10 years old, and by the age of 21, in Glasgow, he had published a 28-page pamphlet, Light-Line Phonography (1888), presenting his own shorthand alphabet, which was phonetic and based on the regular cursive movements of familiar longhand. This alphabet later was adapted to 13 languages.

Excerpt from Lewis' Alpha Vowel Position Shorthand System: d104 Book; A System of Shorthand Having a Complete Alphabet, Vowel Characters With Consonants Attached, Compound Consonants by Union of Consonant Characters, and Position Writing of Vowels Speed may be attained, however, by practice, and a writer taking rapid utterance will be able to meet all requirements by the use of this system, and at the same time make a record that can be read and which never grows cold. Compound consonant signs which are the bane of most systems, in this system follow logically from the alphabet characters and each other, and in union with vowel characters form a system capable of unlimited multiplication of word forms. The similarity of the movements of writing to the movements of longhand writing, the forward direction of the flow, the curve of the signs used and the construction of the entire word form without lifting the pen, lead to an ease of formation and speed in writing found in no other system of equal legibility. The ability to write in full, by syllables or in vowel posi tion at the will of the writer makes this system unique among shorthand methods, while its logical construction, keeping always in view the memory laws of association and similarity of form and sound, makes its acquirement and retention a matter of surprising ease and rapidity.

Excerpt from Simplified Phonetic Shorthand: An American Exposition of the Isaac Pitman Phonography These Lessons are in complete accord with the latest Isaac Pitman Phonography and all the well-edited Pitman shorthand magazines. The simplest and most frequently-used principles are presented and applied first; the more difficult come later. No duplicate letters, or letters written upward and downward, are used until easy matter can be written with facility. No form once learned requires to be changed. The words practiced in the Theory Lessons are written in the same way when reporting. Position is taught from the first; but all words that are not con tractions are vocalized, in every Lesson, in order to facilitate progress. All contractions, not in conflict with principles learned, are used as soon as each principle has been explained and the Exercises practiced. Each Lesson occupies only one page, and no principle, except the halving, requires for its elucidation more than one Lesson. The first thirty Lessons, of one page each, clearly explain and fully illustrate, all the principles of Isaac Pitman's shorthand. The next forty Lessons contain Correspondence Speed Practice, with full instructions how to become successful amanuenses. The last thirty Lessons prepare for verbatim reporting, and furnish sufficient practice to enable students to become very fast writers. The Amanuenses' Speed Practice has never before been printed. It is the result of thirty years' teaching of the Isaac Pitman system. The Reporting Lessons and Instructions are the result of knowledge acquired through years of actual reporting work by a successful teacher. American teachers, with these Lessons, will produce faster and more accurate writers than was possible before in the same time. Quality, not quantity; simplicity, not complexity; business require ments, not philosophical dissertations, have been the great aim. The Pitman text-books are printed from engraved characters which no writer can conform to. These Lessons are reproduced from script executed by the senior shorthand instructor of the New York Business College, and are easily imitated by the student.
