It is not enough, however, that words should be sufficiently vocalized :
the consonant forms should be as clear and distinct as the hand can trace
them. I have known many mistakes arise from the want of attention to

which might be rendered " any one," etc. It must not be forgotten that
almost every abbreviation necessitates additional care in writing. Where
all the letters are of the same length and the same thickness, there
is no necessity for the precision which is requisite where distinctions in all
these respects prevail. A grammalog'ue generally requires more care in
writing than a word in which all the consonants are expressed. It is quite
true that when an abbreviation is employed the writer has more time to
trace the characters, and can therefore be more precise in his delineation.
The misfortune is that the necessity for the precision is not always recog-

and the singular mistakes sometimes made by young and careless phono-

results of careful and expert manipulation ; and, so estimated, it stands
without a rival among stenographic systems.
