Stenography compleated, or The art of short-hand brought to perfection; being the most easy exact speedy, and legible method extant Whereby can be joined in every sentence, at least two, three, four, five, six, seven or more words together in one without taking off y pen, in y twinkling of an eye, and that by the signs of the English moods, tenses, persons particles &c. Never before invented. By this new method any who can but tolerably write their names in round hand may with ease (by this book alone without any teacher) take down from ye speaker's mouth any sermon speech trial play, &c. word by word; though they know nothing of Latin. And may likewise read one another's writing distinctly be it ever so long after it is written to perform these by any other short-hand method extant, is utterly impossible, as is evident from ye books themselves. Authoriz'd by His Majesty, and attested by many gentlemen, at the beginning hereof. Compos'd by James Weston, the only author and professor of this new method
