In a word, the writer has endeavoured to condense his remarks into the smallest possible compass, being an ardent believer in the great Poets philosophy, -Brevity is the soul of Wit.Hence, a useful knowledge of the mechanical construction of the Remington - concerning which full information is contained in an illustrated pamphlet, published by Messrs. Wyckoff, Seamans & Benedict - is pre-supposed, and the Student proceeds at once to acquaint himself or herself with the location of each character on the Key-board, the correct system of fingering, etc., until he has acquired perfect mastery over the Machine- added to which a fair knowledge of Business Phraseology, Capitalization, and Punctuation.This Handbook will be found especially helpful to students of Technical Classes, where tuition is necessarily limited- also to private students whose time and opportunities of personal instruction are also frequently limited, the concise nature of the instructions contained herein will, it is hoped, prove a valuable aid to the attainment of proficiency in this most fascinating art.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
