making fele&tions for the following work, a preference has been given to the produâions of American ge

The compiler, however, has not been wholly confined to America ; but has extruded from approved writers of different ages and countries. Convinced of the impropriety of instilling false notions into the minds of children, he has nog given place to romantic fillion. Although moral elays have not been negle&ted; yet pleasing and interesting stories, exen plifying moral virtues, were judged best calculated to engage the attention and improve the heart. Tales of love have nos gained admifsion.

The compiler pledges himself, that, while this book contains nothing offenhve to the most rigid moralift, neither a word nor a fentiment shall be found, which would raise a blus on the cheek of modefty."

In the arrangement of pieces, the usual order has not been observed. But with design to render it more entertaining to children, dialogues, orations, historical anecdotes, &c. with the different kinds of reading in prose and verse, are variously interspersed through the whole work.

For the conveniency of large clases, the several pieces are divided into paragraphs of a moderate length; the utility of which, those conversant in the instruction of youth will readily discover. Inftru&ors are assured, that the inconveniency ari. Jong from the frequent alterations in the different editions of school-books will never be experienced in this.

The compiler is far from wifping to establish the merits of ihis, by making objections to other performances. Improve ment has been bis object. How far he has succeeded, a care did public will decide.

Boston, May, 1794.
