By William Tomkins

There are a number of sentences which can be made up of the signs included in the first 150 signs taught by William Tomkins in his lessons.  These are also found among the signs of the Tomkins book.  By learning the 200 signs one can become quite fluent in the use of sign language.

The following stories or sentences will enable anyone to pass the Traditional First Class test; in fact there are four times as many as necessary for this, or to do the sign language required for the Indian Lore Merit Badge.
