REMARKS, &c.-LESSON 12. 10. Having settled in your mind the general outlines of your plan, make a sketch of it upon paper, or upon a slate. In doing this, pay no regard to your style of penmanship, to accurate spelling, or proper pointing. Distract your mind with none of the nice trimming and turning of your senterices; but let it be wholly employed in giving form and being to the design which you have adopted, without dropping any of its parts, or adding any new members. The progress of the effort, so far, is what is significantly called blocking out the svork.
11. The next step is to give it some little polish;--that is, clip off all redundancies, and supply all omissions; apply the rules of syntax to each word, and the rules of punctuation to every sentence, and introduce the appropriate capital letters; examine your choice of terms and phrases, the spelling of each word, and the order and arrangement of the sentences and their members;-finally, transcribe the whole in a fair and legible hand, and lay it by carefully for future comparison. 12. This course may seem, at first
, dry and teờious; but after a little practice, some parts of the polishing portion will become perfectly intuitive; such as the spelling, the pointing, the use of capital letters, and the grammatical arrangement, agreement, and government of words: And, in addition to this, you will have adopted and established a systematic course of considering all subjects. To this course your mind will recur on future occasions, and it will be found of incalculable advantage in almost every department of life.
13 Nothing valuable is obtained in this world without labour, care, and patient perseverence, and no temporal acquirement is better worth these pains than that of a ready, perspicuous, and correct style of writing. Knowledge is
power; and this kind of knowledge, has enabled thousands, possessed of very inferior bodily powers, to wield immense machines.
