A good review of this book can be found in the Swedish American Genealogist journal, dated June 2001 (Vol XXI, No. 2).
The article is called "Overcoming That Swedish Reserve", by Robert J. Nelson
.
The book offered instructions on bookkeeping and how to draw up business documents, along with information on postal rates and the English equivalents of Swedish weights and measures.
Most of the volume, though, was devoted to sample letters for all occasions, printed in both English and Swedish.
