Excerpt from The Basic Principles of Gregg Shorthand

The fact that the articles were first written for a maga zine published in England will explain to American readers the numerous references to Isaac Pitman Shorthand, a sys tem which is now little used in America outside of New York City and some parts of Canada, and also why so many quotations from well-known authors and writers of other systems are used in support of each principle ex pounded. In giving these quotations I had in mind the fact that in England there is more reverence for pre cedent and authority than is the case in this country.

After reading this book in proof form, one of the most capable supporters of our system said: The explanation of curvilinear motion as a basic principle in the construo tion of the system was a revelation to me. What puzzles me is why you made that feature so prominent in the Preface of your very first edition and have practically ignored it in recent editions.
