PREFACE

TO

THE THIRD EDITION

THIS

Work on Elocution has had an extensive probation as a Text-Book of practice, both in England and America ; and is now reprinted in compliance with a very general and long-expressed demand made by teachers of public reading and speaking, as well as by private individuals.

The instructions given in it are the result of much study and consideration, as well as of the large practice of the Author, as a teacher, as a speaker in the lecture-room, and as a public reader of Shakspeare, the orators, and poets. Scriptural reading has formed an important branch of the Author's practice ; and this work contains much matter, and some illustrations. of scriptural and liturgical reading, which, he thinks, may be found of use to clerical candidates, and readers at the altar and in the pulpit : for special instruction on these heads, they are, however, referred to his work on CLERICAL ELOCUTION.
