Schol,ARS, male and female, after they have acquired a stocrent knowledge of Arithmetic, especially in the fundaon to rules of Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Di*son, should be instructed in the practice of Book Keeping. oy this it is not meant to recommend that the son or daughter of every farmer, mechanic, or shop keeper, should enter deeply into the science as practised by the merchant, engaged in extensive business, for such study would engross a great portion of time which might be more usefully employed in acquiring a proper knowledge of a trade, or other employment. Persons employed in the common business of life, who do not Yeep regular accounts, are subjected to many losses and inconveniences; to avoid which, the following simple and correct plan, is recommended for their adoption. Let a small book be made, or a few sheets of paper sewed together, and ruled after the examples given in this system. In the book, termed the Day Book, are duly to be entered, daily, all the transactions of the master or mistress of the family, which require a charge to be made, or a credit to be given to any person. No article thus subject to be entered, should on any consideration, be deferred till another day. Great attention should be given to write the transaction in a plain hand; the entry should mention all the particulars necessary to make it fully understood, with the time when they took place; and if an article *e delivered, the name of the person to whom delivered is to be mentioned. No scratching out may be suffered; because it is sometimes done for dishonest purpose , and will weaken or destroy the authority of your accounts. But if, through mistake, any transaction should be wrongly entered, the error must be rectified, by a new entry: and the wrong one may be cancelled by writing the word Error, in the margin. A book, thus fairly kept, will at all times show the exact state of a person's affairs, and have great weight, should there at any time be a necessity of producing it in a court of Justice.
