My newest thrift store book treasure.....

Titled - "Better Say" a book of helpful suggestions for the correct use of English words and phrases. 

It is a small, pamphlet like book, just 34 pages. I guess in 1909, there were but a few words that needed corrections 

An example...........hope. " I hope he arrived in time." Better say: "I trust he arrived in time." Hope refers to the future; "What a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?" (Rom. 8:24)


I love old books.
