Excerpt from Tetypy: The Machine Way in Shorthand The Stetype's success during the three years it has been taught in public, private and parochial schools is sufficient evidence that Stetypy has improved the recording of speech in the four most important essentials - ease, speed, accuracy and legibility. By conserving energy it has become an expression of this age of progress when better and faster methods, applied to a machine, are constantly supplementing and supplanting the cruder hand methods in every line of endeavor. This manual, the outgrowth of valuable experience, presents a simpler Stetypy, more easily learned, written, read and taught. In this edition everything unnecessary has been eliminated, but thing has been omitted that would help the beginning student or the most expert operator. The system is complete and comprehensive, adequate to meet the severest test to which it may be put. In presenting this edition to the public grateful ackwledgment is made of the suggestions of teachers, students and writers, and especially of the service rendered by Misses Mary McEvoy and Laura H. Smock in compiling it. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
