has the right ring, and it says more to
the number of words used than any
letter that I have ever received from
you. 1 remember reading once that
some fellows use language to conceal
thought, but it’s beeu my experience
that a good many more use it instead
o f thought.
A business man's conversation should
be regulated by fewer and simpler
rules than any other function of the
human animal. They are:
Have something to say.
Beginning before you know what you
want to say and keeping on after you
have said it lands a merchant in a law
suit or the poorliouse, and the first is a
short cut to the second. I maintain a
legal department here, and it costs a
lot o f money, but it’s to keep me from
going to law.
It's all right when you are calling on
a girl or talking with friends after din
ner to run a conversation like a Sunday
school excursion, with stops to pick
flowers, but in the office your sentences
should be the shortest distance possible
between periods. Cut out the introduc
tion and the peroration and stop be
fore you get to secondly. You’ve got to
preach short sermons to catch sinners,
and dencons won't believe they need
long ones themselves. Give fools the
first und women the last word. The
meat's always in the middle o f the
sandwich. O f course a little butter on
either side o f it doesn’t do any harm if
it's intended for a man who likes but
Remember, too, that it's easier to
look wise than to talk wisdom. Say
less than the other fellow and listen
more than you talk, for when a man’s
listening he isn’t telling on himself and
he's flattering the fellow who Is. Give
most men a good listener and most wo
men enough note paper and they’ll tell
all they know.
