Lindsay's Simplified Shorthand
Excerpt from Lindsay's Simplified Shorthand: A System of Writing Without Shading, in Which the Vowel and Diphthongal Sounds Are Expressed by the Inclinations of Lines Called Strokes to a Real or Imaginary Horizontal Line Having these shortcomings In vlew, simplified shorthand has been produced with the intention of giving the public a system of shorthand that will embody simplicity in principles, ease in writing, and legibility in reading. As it is not the professional man or the scholar that studies shorthand, only those principles have been used that can be easily comprehended by the young man or young woman of limited education who desires to advance himself or herself in the business world; and as there is no shading of any kind, it may be writ 'ten with facility with either pen or pencil - a fact that is of vast impor tance. Although it is not claimed for simplified shorthand that there are no word signs, as no set of principles can be combined in anyone system of phonography by which every word in the English lan guage can be easily and rapidly written without abbreviation or con traction, the claims for other systems notwithstanding, yet it is claimed that it contains fewer abbreviations and Word signs than any other system in existence. Therefore, with ordinary intelligence and a reasonable amount of study and application, there can be no excuse for anyone not easily mastering simplified shorthand and attaining an ordinary rate of speed and an ability to read without difficulty that which has been written; for the principles herein given are so simple, logical, and few in number, there is no limit to their possibilities. But in order to reach the desired goal, the study should be given the same enthusiasm, and undivided attention, and thoroughness that the small boy exhibits in learning the art of playing baseball. Be thorough Remember, that if each lesson is not thoroughly digested before proceeding to the next, a bad case of shorthand indigestion will soon develop; but if, on the other hand, the errors of haste, careless ness, and indifference are avoided, the result will be found eminently satisfactory and worthy of the effort.
