Excerpt from Modern Whist: Together With the Laws of Whist
The principles of Whist are here embodied under the form of maxims arranged in natural order, so as to render them self-explanatory, and in such terms as might be used when a point arises for criticism after the play of a hand, so that beginners will be less bewildered in learning from this than from more diffuse publications, while older players may learn something in a short space of time without a feeling of going to school again.
