1881 Writing Fluently

Wit published in The Fowlerville Review in 1881:

A correspondent asks, "How can I write fluently?" Young man, get up at sunrise, after a good night's rest, when you will have a clear head and steady nerve, sharpen up your pencil and also your wits, and write it thus, "f-l-u-e-n-t-l-y."

As I close in on writing pretty much everything I can find out about Mr. G.L. Adams of the Review, this still makes me chuckle.
