TAX, AND IN PUNGTUATION,
From the latest English edition, corrected by the Anthier.
PRINTED BY HILL AND NOORE,
HE Compiler of “ English Grammar,
Learners," having been frequentiy solicited to publish an Abridg?nent of that works, for the use of children commencing their grammatical studies, he hopes that the epitome which he now offers to the public will be found useful and satisfactory..
His chief view in presenting the book in this form, is, to preserve the larger work from being torn and defaced by the younger scholars, in their first study of the general outline which it prescribes; and, consequently, to render their application to each part both new and inviting. If a small volume is better adapted to the taste of children than a iarge one; and more readily engages their attention, from the apparent shortness of the road they have to travel, the abridgment will thence derive additional recommendations. To give these argriments the greatest weight, the book is neatly bound and printed with a fair ietter, and on good paper.
