JOHN W. DAVIS,
. Boston, 15 November, 1821. I have made use of the Arithmetic and Tabies, which you soinesine since prepared, on the system of Pestalozzi; and have been much grat. ilied with the improved edition of it, which you have shown me. I am satished, from experiment, that it is the most effectual and interesting ode of teaching the science of numbers with which I ann acquainted.
Having been made acquainted with ir. Colburn's treatise on Arithe melic, and having attended an examination of his scholars, who had been taught according to this system, I are well satisfied that it is the inost easy, simple, and natnral way of introducing young persons to the first principles in the science of numbers. The method here proposed is the fruit of much study and reflection. The author has had considerable ex. perience as 't teacher, added to a strong interest in the subject, and a worough knowledge not only of this but of many of the higher brancher of mathematics. This little work is therefore earnestly recommended to the notice of those who are employed in this branch of early instruction, with the belief that it only requires a fair trial in order to be fully apurová ed and adopted .
