PREFACE.

It is not necessary that the Author should state all his reasons for publishing the following pages. Having found, in the practice of teaching, that all existing Mental Arithmetics were exceedingly deficient in arrangement, both in the Rules and Questions, he proceeded to make an entirely new, and what appeared to him, a natural arrangement for the use of his own school ; and finding it to answer beyond his most sanguine expectations, it was suggested to him, by some of his friends, as being worthy of being offered to the public. Not willing to run any risk, he determined to offer it to be published by subscription, and the readiness by which it was met, by a numerous list of subscribers, is to him exceedingly gratifying, and he hopes that it will, in some measure, meet their expectations. He particularly presses upon all Parents or Teachers, who raay use his book, to proceed upon the system laid down. To come mence with exercising the senses, and developing the faculties. To teach principles, not isolated questions ; and would particularly caution them against putting it into the hands of Children, as a task book. It is not formed for decreasing the Teacher's labour, but for increasing it. .
