consonants is used so largely that its being entirely represented by horizon-
tals would ensure -permanent horizontal direction to the writing.

" There are other points of improvement which would be appreciated bj
those who have actually grappled with the difficulties of Phonography."



TESTIMONIALS O FAVOR OF TACHYGRAPHY.

From J. NELSON ASHBURN, Cleveland, Ohio.

" A system of writing that will revolutionize our present long style,
and establish a new alphabet on a phonetic basis, will confer as great
a blessing on us as a nation as ever did Fulton, or Franklin, or
Morse."
From J. W. PLATT, ESQ., of the State Temperance Journal, Conn.

" The grand desideratum seems at last to be found. It (Tachyg-
raphy) is certainly a vast simplification of the best system previously
"known. We commend the system to the attention of professional men
and youth, as one that will bear examination and practical experi-
ment."

From JAMES EDI, ESQ., Verona, Wis.

" I look upon the Am. Primer, by Elias Longley, of Cincinnati, and
your (Lindsley's) system of short-hand as models of simplicity."

From D. "W. COOK, Southington, Conn.

" For his wonderful success in perfecting a system of short-hand
writing that is within the capacity of all, Mr. Lindsley will yet receive
the blessings of the people of this land. The common style of
Tachygraphy is so easy of comprehension, that any one who can learn
the common writing can learn this."

From IVISON, PHINNET, & Co., per JAS. M. LTJSK.
" So far as we are able to judge of the alphabet of Tachygraphy, it
is an improvement over any of the existing Phonographic systems."

From HON. ABIJAH CATLIN, of Conn.

" It (Tachygraphy) is easily reduced to practice, and remarkably
accurate and legible."

From ABNER ROYCE, Cleveland, Ohio.

" As to Tachygraphy, it is the only practicable system of short-hand
ever invented, and I have never found yet an old Phonographer who,
after giving it a careful examination, did not acknowledge its claims
and adopt it."

From S. W. WALKER, A. B.

" Your style of Tachygraphy will commend itself by its simplicity
and easiness to many who would not look at Pitman's or Graham's."
From C. A. WAL WORTH, ESQ., of Bryant, Stratton, $ WalwortKs
. Business College, Utica, N. T.

" As to Phonography, it is a sheer waste of time for ninety-nine in
a hundred who study it."
From J. F. SPALDING, A. M., Round Hill School, Northampton, Mass.

" Let any man fairly examine the two systems (Phonography and
Tachygraphy), and I am convinced that he will pronounce Tachyg-
raphy immensely superior."
