PREFACE TO PART II.
SOME features have been introduced into Part II. of this work which would have been inappropriate in Part I., and which may need a word of explanation.
Lessons will be found distributed through Part II. made up of the words which the pupil will encounter in the studies now to be undertaken, such as geography, arithmetic, and grammar. These words have not been placed in sentences, as it is expected that they will be fully explained by the teacher on their occurrence in the pages of the textbooks.
The lessons occurring from time to time in Part I., made up of words to be framed in intelligible sentences, are here continued, with the suggestion that they are also to serve, at the discretion of the teacher, as introductions to the study of synonymy. One of the richest features of our language is the copiousness of its synonymes, and there is no branch of study more interesting and profitable.
