Spectroscopic observations were carried out of potential nearby high proper motion stars taken from Luyten's LHS and NLTT catalogues. The purpose was to obtain a first distance estimate for hitherto neglected nearby candidates. The resulting spectra for fourteen stars are presented and discussed. The sample comprises eleven M dwarfs and three M subdwarfs having spectroscopic distances from 17 pc to 160 pc.
