The most rational, easy, and speedy method of writing short-hand : without pen and ink, in three parts, Viz. I. A triple alphabet, which contracts the whole Language without the help of Dots or Vowels. II. Contraction, Rational, Grammatical, and Elliptical, in all their Parts, exemplisied by a variety of Striking examples, and an Index of ten thousand words. III. Syntax, or the method of Joining words together, founded upon an Immutable plan. The whole of this art, resting upon only thirteen arbitrary Characters, is reduced to the capacities of Youth, and the public, for ever delivered from all further Impositions on the subject of Short-Hand.
