The Dictionary of Typewriting provides a system for teaching oneself certain requirements needed for drafting correspondence. The typist of the communication is advised to follow correct etiquette in their letter writing. One part of this is ensuring that the full name and address of the 'addressee' is given without error in order to result in a successful delivery. In arranging this information one should use either the 'block' method or the 'indented method' depending on the length of text. Post Office regulations should be noted and complied with such as leaving a clear space for postage stamps. The dictionary covers these points and others considered important in the modern office environment.
