This contains townd and cities of various places. Read through them as they may be similar to somewhere you live or know about. Work on the ones you have to know now. Keep this list handy for future reference. If you forget any when reading a letter or article, it will have the two dashes under it, indicating it's a city or state and you will be able to decifer it (the sentence will help too). So don't worry about memorizing all these places. Plus some may have had a name change.
"Gregg Shorthand had achieved the most extraordinary success ever attained by any system in the history of shorthand." John Robert Gregg, 1922
