Excerpt from Normal Phonography: Adapted to All Styles of Reporting, Being a Further, Development of the Principles of Phonggraphy by Means of Which Is Secured a Greater Variation of Outline, Giving Equal Bravity With Greatly Increased Legibility The first edition of Normal Phonography was so kindly mentioned by several lending educational journals that I have been emboldened to labor further on the same lines. The phonographic critics allowed the great legibility of the system, but pointed out that this was attained at the expense of brevity. I was bound to acknowledge the justice of this criticism, and, after having spent the last two years in the endeavor to remove this defect, I now confidently offer this edition to the public as the result of my labors, and venture to claim that it contains not only the solution, but the only practical solution of the problem which now occupies and has for so long occupied the attention of the stenographic world both in America and in England, - namely, "How to secure an adequate vowel representation without the loss of brevity." The great improvements which I now introduce with this edition have rendered the system as now presented amply sufficient for all reporting purposes. It can now be written as briefly as any existing phonography; it is far more easy of acquisition than any of them. And in the attainment of these ends its legibility, in which it confessedly stands at the head of any other system, has not been sacrificed. I do not much believe that any style of phonography can be thoroughly acquired by text-books alone, without the aid of competent teachers; and any teacher who may get this book will easily be able to seize the scope and meaning of it without further explanation. But to novices in phonography it is necessary to explain that the stroke vowels given in the alphabet are not to be inserted promiscuously in the consonant outline. Such a course would make a phonetic writing of a certain kind, but it could never be called a practical phonography.
