[PikE's ARITHMETICK is universally acknowledged to be the most complete system ever published in the United States. It is the source, indeed, from which most of tbe common arithmeticks have been compiled. Several years of laborious study were devoted to the work by its author, and on its first appearance, it obtained a very high reputation. Others have built upon his foundation, and their works have been deservedly popular ; but still, in the fulness and correctness of his rules, and the simplicity of their illustration, PIKE STANDS PRE-EMINENT.] From Andrew Mack, Esq. Preceptor of the Academy at Haverhill, N. H, Jacob B. Moore,
SIR.-I have examined your edition of Pike's Arithmetick, and am favorably impressed with the additions and improvements; and am of opiuion that the work is as well adapted to use in our primary schools and academies, as any system of a similar kind that has come to my knowledge. Yours respectfully,
From Thomas Chadbourne, M. D. of Concord. Pike's system of Aritbmetick has long been classed among standard works, not only in primary schools, but in the bigher seminaries. The bridgment now published by Mr. Jacob B. Moore, embraces the most essential parts of the original work, condensed into a more portable torm; and by the addition of new and practical illustrations, and appropriate questions, the present edition will be found eminently calculated both to lessen the labor of instruction, and facilitate the progress of the pupil.
THO. CHADBOURNE. Concord, June, 1826.
From Ephraim Kingsbury, Esq. Register of Deeds for Grafton County.
DEAR SIR, I have received from you by the hand of George Woodward, Esq. a copy of Pike's Arithmetick, abridged by Dudley Leavitt, Esq. and am decidedly of opinion, that it is best adapted for common schools of any Arithmetick within my knowledge. I am much pleased to see, what has long been wanting, a short system of Book-Keeping ; and shall be pleased to see the Arithmetick introduced into our schools, and to meet with that patronage it justly deserves. Very respectfully, Yours,
EPHRAIM KINGSBURY. Haverhill, June 15, 1826.
