In the May 1982 Newsletter, p. 9, I was happy to see Joel Myerson's notice of my system for transcribing manuscripts (Studies in Bibliography 29 : 212-264). I should like to add a few comments on what I take to be the peculiar virtues of this system as against the so-called genetic-text system using various symbols, not all of which are agreed upon by editors and which strain a lay reader's memory if my own difficulty in reading such texts is any guide.
