Excerpt from General Rules for Punctuation and for the Use of Capital Letters
Good sense determines the pauses which marks of punctuation indicate, and is, therefore, the guide to correct punctuation.
Since punctuation is one of the means by which a writer seeks to communicate thoughts or feelings to his readers, it must vary with thought and expression: Sterne's punctuation must differ from that of Dr. Johnson, and, though in a less degree, Burke's from that of Macaulay. Hence, no one writer - even were books printed correctly, as is rarely the case - can be taken as a model. Hence, too, a complicated system of rules loaded with exceptions, though founded upon the best usage and framed with the greatest care, is as likely to fetter thought as to aid in its communication.
