Dear Sir : We have examined your Arithmetics, the National and Introductory, and take pleasure in expressing to you our high satisfaction in them, as superior to any books in this bravch of education with which we are acquainted.

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.

(Signed,)

RECOMMENDATIONS OF GREENLEAF'S ARITHMETIC.

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.

I have used Mr. Greenleaf's National Arithmetic in my School for nearly two years ; and, having thus tested its good qualities, I can cheerfully recommend it, as a system of arithmetic well adapted for giving an indívidual a thorough knowledge of the science.

Å. H. MERRIAM,

Preceptor of Westminster Academy. Westminster, (Mass.) June 6, 1843.

I have made use of Mr. Greenleaf's National Arithmetic in my school, and am of the opinion, that it possesses superior excellences as an Arithmetic, and well adapted to our common and higher Schools.

F. G. PRATT, Bridgewater, (Mass.) June 14, 1843. Preceptor of Bridgewater Academy.

The undersigned, having examined the National Arithmetic on the Inductive System, by Benjamin Greenleaf, Esq., do not hesitate to pronounce it a work of high merit. The various subjects treated of in it are arranged in a manner at once philosophical and practical ; and, in the opinion of the undersigned, it contains a greater amount of useful and valuable matter, some of which inust otherwise be sought for in rare books, than any other similar work with which they are acquainted. And they cheerfully recommend it to teachers and learners, as a work of high and undoubted worth.

Extract from a Letter from Hiram Orcutt, Esq., Teacher.

Hebron, N. H., Feb. 27, 1843. “ Your Arithmetic I have had opportunity thoroughly to examine, having introduced it into my School, and conducted two large classes of teachers entirely through it. And I can freely say, Sir, "hat in my opinion, no book of the kind now extant, is so well calculated to lead the student to a thorough practical knowledge of figures as this.”

New Bedford, Mass., Dec. 26, 1842. Benjamin Greenleaf, Esq. Dear Sir : We have examined your Introductory Arithmetic, and are much pleased with the plan and execution. The examples are practical ; the rules clear and concise ; the principles of the science are unfolded, and its practical uses explained with great perspicuity and simplicity. We deem it eminently calculated to answer the object for which it is designed.
