Excerpt from Twentieth Century Manual of Railway and Commercial Telegraphy

Beginning with the alphabet, the work has been arranged as it has naturally come to our greatest operators. To make the student's progress gradual, the first thing he masters in the practical office, the things that first come to his ears as he studies, and the first things he will get a chance to do under the teacher or operator, are properly arranged and lead from one to another in logical order.

To teach the alphabet is not enough. The stu dent must have the correct punctuations, which in telegraphy are entirely different from the manner in which they appear in print. He must know how to use some punctuations for signs, and how to abbreviate his words. He must learn the technical laws governing sending and receiving operators. Were these points mastered by the average opera tor, countless failures would be saved.

In these days, correct forms and correct copies are absolutely necessary. To understand how to save time, and to transmit and receive messages.
