PREFACE.

This little book has been written and compiled at the request of several old pupils. It contains the sum and substance, and order of teaching, on a system which I have adopted with invariable success over a period of eighteen years. My object in writing it has been to render Elocution simple. My readers will find that the various technical terms which serve but to bewilder the student, have been carefully excluded, and every rule and suggestion has been reduced to pure and simple everyday English. The lessons and exercises bave been carefully arranged, so as to lead the student by easy and progressive steps to the top of the ladder. By marking carefully one or more of the exercises I have shown how all exercises to the respective rule should be read, and I hand this treatise to my students, confident that with an average amount of intelligence applied they may in every case be quite sure of success.
