RECOMMENDATIONS.

Haverhill, May 22, 1843. “B. GREENLEAF, Esq. - Dear Sir: We have examined your Arithmetics, the Na. tional and Introductory, and take pleasure in expressing to you our

high satisfaction in them, as superior to any books in this branch of education with which we are acquainted. We are especially pleased with the accuracy and precision of the defini. tions, and with the clearness and fullness of illustration by the examples. The two together seem to be just what are needed, and we are inclined to say all that are needed on this subject in our Public Schools. In accordance with this view of your books, as members of the General School Committee, we have encouraged their use in the schools in this town. (Signed,) "EDWARD A. LAWRENCE, Superintending, A. S. TRAIN,

School Committee." “BENJAMIN GREENLEAF, Esq. - Dear Sir: I regard your National Arithmetic as one of the best I have ever seen. Perhaps the best proof of the estimation in which I hold its merits, is the fact that I use it in the school under my care. I am, Sir, very respectfully yours, ROGER S. HOWARD,

Principal of the Latin High School. Newburyport, May 5, 1843."

“Having used Greenleaf's Arithmetic, in the schools with which I have been connected for three years past, I am prepared to give it the preference over any other work of the kind with which I am acquainted. “Very respectfully yours,

A. FARWELL,

Principal of Abbott Female Academy. " Andover, June 6, 1843." From H. Morison, Esq., Professor of Mathematics and President of the

University of Maryland, Baltimore. “This is one of the most complete books of its kind, both in the extent and arrangement of its matter, that has yet appeared... Combining, as it does, the Analytic and Synthetic methods, and abounding in familiar examples, it is admirably calcu. lated to interest the pupil, and lead him, by easy and progressive steps, through the difficulties of the science, to its complete mastery, and full comprehension. To make the work more perfect, than a treatise on Arithmetic merely could be, the author has added many geometrical, mechanical, philosophical, and astronomical problems, and a concise system of Book-keeping, so that, without the aid of any other book, it is calculated to make the perfect business man, in all his various departments.

(Signed,) “H. MORISON.” LOther testimonials to the merits of this work, will be found in the advertis ing sheet, at the end of the volume, to which the reader is referred.

PREFACE.

wit

The following treatise is intended for that class of pupils, who may not have sufficient time to read the larger work on this science, published by the author a few years since, and which has had extensive circulation.

It is believed, that this book contains all, that is necessary to prepare the young for the common avocations of life.

If the student wishes to obtain an extensive and full knowledge of this science, he can consult the National Arithmetic.

It has been a great object with the author to render the work practical ; how far he has succeeded, the public must judge.

The questions are original, although there may be a similarity between some of these and others, which are before the public, and which could not be well avoided.

Although the author has carefully examined every question, yet, it is possible, some few mistakes may be found in this work. These, however, will be corrected in a future edition.

With these few prefatory remarks, the author commends this small volume to the candor of an enlightened Public.
