Excerpt from Barnes' Home Instructor in Shorthand: Companion to Barnes' Shorthand Manual, Edition of 1893
Learn Pars. 76 - 78. Transcribe lines 1 - 10, p. 17, without help from the key; then correct by means of the key. Read lines 1 10 until you can read them correctly and ra... pidly. Study Pars. 7 9-83. Read and transcribe the remainder of p. 17.
The outlines in line 14 are not put in position because they are so unlike any other outlines that they can be easily read without the aid of position. They would be just as easily read if written on unruled paper. In the word Idaho, line 14, the hook on Hay can not be fully made, but is indicated by retracing the previous stroke.
Study lines 11 - 14 until you can read them correctly and rapidly. When you can read p. 17 in five minutes, write it from the long hand key without help from the printed phonography, being care ful to observe rules in Pars. 74, 7 7 and 78. Write the page, as previously directed, line for line. After comparing line 1 with the printed shorthand, write the line correctly ten times. Proceed in the same way with each line. The knowledge and facility of writ ing that you gain in practicing one line many times will help you greatly in writing the next line.
Write the exercise on p. 18; compare and correct according to directions given for exercise on p. 12. Read carefully and thought fully Pars. 84 - 90. Learn the summary. Read Pars. 91 - 99 care fully and thoughtfully, and learn Pars. 93, 96, 97, and 99. This portion of the work will be better understood later on.
Do not be troubled if you do not always understand why a reporter finds it safe to write certain words in the second position, or as reporters say, without position. Whenever you are in doubt as to whether a word needs position or not, put it in position. Except in case of con¿icting words, it is never wrong to put a word in position. It may be unnecessary trouble, but it is not Wrong.
