RECOMMENDATION. WE whose names are subscribed have examined the following extracts from Ovid's Metamorphoses, and think them judiciously selected, and well adapted to promote the progress of the classical student. The English editor appears to have been careful to exclude any indelicate expressions or sentiments, which might have a tendency to injure the morals of youth. This small volume contains as much of Ovid's Metamorphoses as is usually read at school; and we beg leave to recommend it to all teachers of Latin throughout the United States.

We approve the plan of short explanatory notes in English. Long notes in Latin are not useful to boys, because they are not easily understood, and therefore are seldom read.
