EPUB

exclusively of dialogues, will be published ma few weeks, in which will be inserted exercises of greater length and variety.

It has not been deemed essential or important to insert rules and directions, because books, abounding in such rules, are already numerous, and because it is believed that the teacher can impart all needed instruction more clearly and efficiently than can be given by any printed directions.

With the earnest hope that the book may be both acceptable and useful, the compiler commends it to the attention of bis professional brethren, and to the use of those for whose special pleasure and benefit it has been prepared.

Note. - The plates of the “ American Speaker” were destroyed by fire soon after the publication of the third edition, and, in preparing a new set, the author has made several changes. The Dialogues in the present edition are entirely different from those in the former editions, and several pieces have been added to the Prose and Poetry parts. A few pieces of Poetry that were in the early editions are omitted in this on account of their length.

Those desirous of obtaining the Dialogues as contained in the first, edition, may find them all in the volume of “School Dialogues” recently prepared by the author of this work.

Salem, Mass., March, 1849
