This is a very compact, simple and economic system of keeping accounts. At first examination the general arrangement seems complicated, but this is more apparent than real, and its practical utility is soon evident when closely studied or when put into use. The system consists of two books, a ledger and a monthly visiting list. While the former is intended for the pocket it really takes the place of the ordinary ledger, and is not necessarily to be carried on one's person. The visiting list consists of a durable cover, for the monthly lists the latter being changed each month. This arrangement makes the book to be carried in the pocket, compact, light and flexible.
