Excerpt from Punctuation Practically Illustrated: A Manual for Students and Correspondents
If this study is important from a business point of view, its educational value is beyond the power of calculation. The ability to express an idea clearly in a well-rounded period is th... e greatest gift of the preacher, the lawyer, and the statesman; and this power is not to be obtained without close study of those laws of language which are clearly defined and may be easily mas tered. Owing to the number of points involved in each rule as formulated by grammarians, the formal teaching of the subject is generally deferred until the pupil has finished his grammar course; and the programmes of most schools unwisely allow but little time for specific instruo tion in this important feature of education.
