The following work is designed as a Class Book for the use of both Union and Country Schools. It has been the aim of the author to make it thoroughly practical in subject-matter, and clear, simple, and consistent in the arrangement and treatment of topics. Hence, he has carefully inserted every thing which he thought really essential in an elementary treatise, and has excluded every thing which he thought would unnecessarily encumber the subject, or perplex the pupil.
The constant object in the preparation of this work has been to be as concise as is consistent with being complete, and to avoid the fault, often committed, of introducing so many details as to obscure more important first principles. In every, particular, whether of outline or detail, the author has taken counsel of long experience and careful study.
The attention of teachers is particularly invited to the following distinctive features of the book :
1. The synopsis at the head of each chapter, designed to give, for purposes of examination or topical recitation, a clear and connected view of the subjects discussed, and their relations to each other.
2. The careful introduction of one single subject at a time, and its copious illustration by examples.
3. The unusually large number of models and exercises in parsing and false syntax.
