Excerpt from The Penman and Artist
Writing, for business purposes, to within a hundred years, was of secondary consideration; its chief function was of an epistolary nature often having its standard of value adjudged by its complication of meaningless and difficult strokes often by the beautiful contrast of its light lines and full elegant shades, but never on a basis of its commercial worth.
For a long time, modifications of the round-hand of today were used exclusively and until the Opening out of the wonderful commercial era, that kind of writing seemed all that was desired or required, and less than forty years ago the writing used in the books of seine large business concerns was of that beautiful variety, but necessarily slow and painful in execution, Such a. Condition could not endure in the electrical age but while it was slowly rubbing the weight of slumber from its heavy eyes, that mechanical aid to the writer the typewriter - came into existence.

As the reading of printed matter became general it had the liberty to introduce forms of greater convenience to its own needs and as people changed fro in reading all writing and no print to much print and little writing. The latter must of needs con form, to a certain extent, with the former for the convenience of the reader. That style of handwriting that best meets this call will he the subject of succeeding numbers.
