PREFACE.

This little book, as the title imports, is designed to be used in common schools, immediately after, or in connexion with, the spellingbook; and, accordingly, the lessons are such as may be interesting and instructive to children.

A few of the most important emphatic words are printed in italics. Some words which are often incorrectly pronounced, are marked with accents, according to a key placed at the beginning of the book, so as accurately to convey the sounds. In a few instances a different spelling is given at the bottom of the page for the same purpose. The paragraphs are broken into short portions, and numbered, to render it more convenient for reading in classes.

For a more particular character of the book, the compiler refers to the work itself; being aware that the public will judge of a book according to their own opinion of its merits, and not by what the author says of it.

Winthrop, Sept. 1827.
