4-25-47,

THE Reflection imparts to me singular Satisfaction, that I have expended those Hours, which I have been able to redeem from my daily Occupation, on correcting and enlarging a Work, which will eminently contribute to the Amusement and Improvement of young Persons. Teaching the Greek and Roman Classics has conftituted the principal Employment and the principal Felicity of my Life, and I. look through a Series of Twenty Years with exalted Pleasure and Gratitude, in which I have done fome Service to my Country, in instructing Youth in the best Species of Erudition, teaching them to understand and relish the immortal Productions of Greece and Rome, and by these Standards of literary Excellence, forming them to Purity of Diction, Elegance of Taste, and Solidity of Judgment. This is the sole Department in which, as an INSTRUCTOR, I have done good, or indeed can conscientiously serve Mankind.
