Excerpt from Easy Lessons in Geography and History: Designed for the Use of the Younger Classes in the New England Schools

The work he prepared on this plan, was of very humble pretensions, it having been no part of the author's design to give a complete system, in an abridged form, of the subjects to which it relates. It was simply what it pro fessed to bow-easy Lessons in Geography and History; designed not to be a substitute for other works of the kind, but rather to serve as an introduction to others.

As it respects the present edition, which, as I it is stereotyped, is intended to be of a per manent form, the author trusts that it will be found to be an improvement on the former editions. The whole work has been re-written and considerably enlarged, and the catecheti cal form, which was at first adopted, has been exchanged for the familiar conversation, or the continued narrative, accompanied with questions, either interspersed through thework, or, as in the case with the Second Part, placed at the bottom of the page. These changes, though they may not lessen the labor of the teacher, will, it is believed, render the book more attractive to the pupil, and thereby facilitate his progress.

The teacher is earnestly requested to attend to the directions which will be found scattered in various parts of the book; as, otherwise, the design of the author will be, in a great measure, frustrated. He is particularly anxious that the method he has recommended, in regard to the use of maps and the black board, should be tested by a fair experiment, wherever this book may be used.
