C. M.Ligget’s,
Writing Academy ,
Corner of Fourth and Chesnut Streets,
St. Louis, Mo.

This Institution imparts instruction upon principles entirely
peculiar to itself. While the pupil obtains a free, bold, and
legible hand, (as can be shown by 200 specimens of citizens
known in this place), be receives a free and natural use of his
arm, wrist and fingers. Thus, while it retains all that is useful
in other systems, it secures to the pupil a Practical,
Beautiful, Regular System Of Penman-
ship, as the result of motion and symmetrical form, instead
of exclusive muscular motion. The old plan remains, propor-
tionate to the impression made on the mind, (hence so many
scrawlers and scribblers), while this remains commensurate
with the natural use of those members of the body designed by
Nature to be exercised in Penmanship.
