Pagina 21 - NOTES. 1. Have a regular system. 2. If you have worked out a system of your own which satisfies you, do not change it. 3. Shorthand is not a great convenience, unless the notes are afterwards put into a form which may be read by any one. 4. A system of recognizable abbreviations is desirable. 5.
