Excerpt from The Manual of Business: Being a Collection of Correct Business Forms for Executing All Commercial Instruments, Commercial Data and Advice on the Thousand and One Questions of Correct Methods That Are Constantly Arising in Every Day Business Life While stenography is making steady encroachments on penmanship, the latter is still a valuable business accomplishment, and the art of business correspondence is a sine qua non of successful merchandising. The following rules and examples of penmanship will doubtless be of some service to those wishing to further perfect themselves in this art. Rules For Penmanship. Three things are necessary in good penmanship, legibility, rapidity and beauty. Always sit in an upright, easy position, with both feet placed on the floor. Your pen will not get away from you, so do not pinch it, for this will cramp the fingers and destroy all freedom of movement. Hold the pen lightly between the thumb and first two fingers, so that the holder will point over your right shoulder. This will cause the points of the pen to press evenly on the paper. Avoid the finger movement. It is not practical and very laborious. In business writing flourishes should be avoided. Neither the right side of the hand nor the wrist should ever touch the desk, as this will hinder a free and easy movement. In order to have the correct slant in writing, the downward stroke of the pen should be drawn toward the center of the body. Do not sacrifice legibility to rapidity. Be accurate first and rapid afterward. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
