RECOMMENDATIONS. From the Secretary of the State of New York. « Mr. GOULD,
Albany, Jan. 14, 1823. “Dear Sir---Having examined the system of Short IIand, which you are about to publish, I am satisfied that it possesses merits, which ought to recommend it to the attention of the public. The improvements which you have made, in relation to the facility of writing and legibility of the hand, are obvious; and your design of introducing it into schools, appears to be peculiarly happy, and well calculated to bring into public estimation an accomplishment, which cannot fail of being admired, when its unbounded utility is compared with the trifling time and means necessary to its acquisition.
“ The plan of exhibiting your theory upon a card, at a single view, to a whole school, (and thus reducing the erpense of furnishing, schools,
from dollars lo cents,') is so admirably adapted to economy, and the general extension of the system throughout our country, that it must meet the approbation of every lover of science, and receive the patronage of the community, ever alive to the prosperity and happiness of the rising generation ; and I shall most cheerfully recommend it to the notice of our legislature, now in session, and to the public in general.
I am yours, with respect and esteem,
i J. V. N. YATES." Secretary of State, and acting Superintendent of Common Schools, in New York.
From one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of New York.
“ TO THE PUBLIC. “I certify with great pleasure, that Mr. M.T. C. Gould is a gentleman of excellent reputation and of highly respectable attainments: of his professional skill, from what I know, and have heard from competent judges, I have no hesitation to say, that he stands deserredly high.

From the Clerk of the Assembly of the State of New York. “Mr. M. T. C. GOULD,
“ Albany, March 15, 1821. « Siro--As you have terminated your course of six lessons in short hand writing, which ! desired you to instruct me, and having justly deserved
my decided approbation for the skill and ability
with which I know you teach that science, I take this opportunity to put you in possession of my sincere recommendation,
“Of the utility, importance, and great value of short hand writing, no one can doubt, who understands it. i confess I am astonished to find so little time, so little labour, and above all, 80 little money, necessary to the acquisition of a knowledge of this delightful and convenient art. Did all classes of men reflect upon and consider the subject, I doubt not they would soon become masters of it. I hope you will continue your instructions--I hope you will explain your system, particularly its simplicity, to our public teachers and their pupils, and I believe you will be liberally patronized. I sincerely wish you success.
“I remain your humble servant,

RECOMMENDATIONS, of Mr. Gould, as from a knowledge of his system, having seen it taught in the seminary under my care. · Elizabeth Town, Aug. 28, 1924.
“Rev. JOHN C, RUDD." From the New York Patriot. “ M.T. C. Gould, of this city, has just published the fourth edition of his Analytic Guide and Authentic Key to the art of Short Hand Writing.' This system of Stenography is recommended in the most flattering terms by the Secretary of this state, by the late Clerk of the Assembly, by the Professors of several colleges in this and other States; and resolutions recommending it have been passed by the studeuts of Yale College. The work just published, is designed for the instruction of those who live at a distance from a teacher, and seems to be well adapted to the purpose. The elegant art of Stenography ought to form a part of the common school education; for it will be a pleasure and a benent to those who may acquire it."
From the United States Literary Gazette, No.10. In a review of Mr. Gould's Short Hand, the editors of the Gazette say: “ The little book before us is very well executed, and is the best we have seen. We learn from the advertisement, that the same theory has been published upon a card, in a letter so large as to be legible to a whole school at once, thus materially abridging the labour of teaching, and reducing the expense of systems from dollars to cents. All this is very well, and we hope the public will reward Mr. Gould for labours, from which they may derive much benefit. We are decidedly of the opinion, that Short Hand should be introduced into our Colleges and Academies, and be considered essential in a liberal education."
From Yale College-First Class. “WE the subscribers, members of Yale College, most cheerfully unite with the young gentlemen of other colleges, in expressing our entire approbation of Mr. Gould's System of Stenography, which he has lately taught in this institution. He is certainly entitled to much credit for the improvements which he has made upon this invaluable Art: and we have no reason to doubt, that his excellent system will soon become a standard for Short Hand, in the United States.
“Our progress in the art fully warrants us in recommending him to public patronage, and his system to general use. " Yale College, Aug. 1, 1823."
(Signed by 80 of the Students.) From Yale College-Second Class. RESOLUTIONS passed by Mr. Gould's second class at Yale College, consisting of about one hundred young gentlemen, attached to the Medical and Academical departments of this Institution, Dec. 5, 1893.
“ Resolved, That the thanks of this class be presented to Mr. Gould, for the able and interesting manner in which he has communicated to us a knowledge of his admirable system of Short Hand, which must be admired by all who know its merits.
Resoloed, That we most cordially concur in the opinion expressed at many other Colleges, and particularly by a class of 80 young gentlemen, who attended Mr. Gould's instructions in this Institution, in July last, viz: that our progress fully warrants us in recommending the Author and System to public patronage."
(Signed by about one hundred.)
From Union, Williams, and Hamilton Colleges. “ Having attended Mr. Gould's instruction in Short Hand writing, we fully concur with others in opinion, that his experience in this art has placed him at the head of his profession, and that his system of writing, and method of teaching, richly entitle bim to public patronage. Our progress in the art has fully answered our expectations, and is a sufficient testimonial in favour of the system here recommended.' (Signed by more than one hundred.)

From Union College. " The un lersigned states with pleasure, that he has examined the principles of Stenography as taught by Mr. M. T.C. Gould, and has witnessed the success with which the young gentlemen in college have attended to the acquisition of this art, under his instruction. The sys. tem is remarkably simple; the art is acquired with great facility, and is worthy of the atterr tion and patronage of all literary men.

RECOMMENDATION, TO THE PUBLIC.
Washington City, July 1825.
M. T. C. Gould, Esq. has been, for several years, a distinguished Stenographer in the State of New York, and particularly in the convention of 1821. From our knowledge of his professional skill, and his character as a gentleman, we cordially unite in recommending him to the favourable notice of the American public. He is the author of a System of Stenography, and a teacher of the art in many of the Colleges of the United States—his book is highly approved by gentle
Academen of literary distinction, and from its adoption in Colleges and mies, we have no doubt that it possesses superior merit-and that it justly deserves the character which it has received the best system extant." John W. Taylor, speaker.
