Zaner-Bloser Method Writing

Introduction to this early writing manual on 'good writing'  states that:
"No one has a moral right to write illegibly, because it means waste of time and effort, not only to the writer but to the reader."  "Good writing is acquired; not inherited.  Intelligent effort rather than talent is necessary to learn it."   " A free movement of the arm is essential to good writing".
