Qreeley's Writing.
During the early part ot the nine
teenth century the bad writing of great
men became almost a byword, lo fact,
poor writing was considered by some
people as almost a sign ot genius.
Horace Greeley was such a poor writ
er that his correspondents were some
times obliged to guess at his meaning.
It Is related that a reporter on the New
York Tribune who received a letter
from Greeley discharging him present
edIt as a letter of recommendation to
the editor of another paper.
