CHARLES A. INGERSOLL, Clerk t to District of Connecticut.
Yale College, Nov. 27, 1798. HAVE read DABOLL'S ScuOOLNASTER'S ASSISTANT. The arrangement of the different branches of Arithmetic is judicious and perspicuous. The author has well explained Decimal Arithmetic, and has applied it in a plain and elegant manner in the solution of various questions, and especially to those relative to the Federal Computation of money, 'I think it will be a very useful book to Schoolmasters and their pupils.
JOSIAH MEIGS, Professor of
Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. [Now Surveyor-General of the United States.
HAVE given some attention to the work above men. tioned, and concur with Mr. Professor Meigs in his opinion of its merit.
NOAH WEBSTER. Ner-Haven, Dec. 12, 1799.
Rhod-Island College, Nov. 30, 1799. I HAVE run through Mr. DABOLL’s SCHOOLMASTER'S Assistant, and have formed of it a very favorable opin'ion. According to its original design, I think it well "calculated to furnish Schools in general with a methodi. cal, easy, and comprehensive System of Practical Arithmetic."
I therefore hope it may find a generous patronage, and have an extensive spread.
ASA MESSER, Professor of the Learned Languages, and teacher of Mothematico.
