BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the Fourteenth day of August, in the forty-ninth year of the Independence of the United States of America, A.

Philodelphia, Sept. 23, 1811. AGREEABLY to your request, I have examined Mr. PIKE's Treatisc of Arithmetic, and am much pleased with it. His mode of exemplifying the rules, is, I think, extremely well accommodated to the comprehension of juvenile pupils; while the general arrangement, extent, and scientific execution of the work renders it worthy of adoption in both public and private seminaries.
JAMES ARERCROMBIE, D. D.
Director of the Philadelphia Academy. Messrs. Johnson & Warner.
Philadelphia, Ninth mo. 26, 1811. I save examined the System of Arithmetic compiled by S. Pike, and am of opinion that it is well calculated for conveying to youtli, in a short time, a general knowledge of that science.
The commendable attention which the compiler has paid to a clear elucidation of his subject, as well as his careful exclusion of any thing which would unnecessarily perplex, entitles him to the thanks of those who are engaged in the laborious task of imparting knowledge to youth.
Philadelphia, Sept. 16, 1811, AFTER a careful inspection of Mr. S. PIKE's System of Arithmetic, I give it a decided preference to every other I have yet seen, and shall be glad of the publication of a work, that, in my opinion, will deduct from the labour of teaching, and conduce to the advantage of learners.
JOHNSON TAYLON. GENTLEMEN,
Philadelphia, Sept. 30, 1811. I Have no hesitation in declaring my belief, in concurrence with the gentlemen who have already recommended S. Pike's System of Arithmetic, that its publication will conduce to the public and private utility of the arithmetical student.
Your's, &c. Messrs. Johnson & Warner.
SAMOÉL B. WYLIE.
THE System of Arithmetic compiled by S. Pike, is, in my opinion, a very judicious performance. The arrangement of the parts, the perspicuity of the rules, and the appropriate and familiar nature of the examples, are peculiarly calculated to facilitate the progress of the learner. I therefore give the work a decided preference to any other on the subject, with which I am acquainted.
