Yale College, Nov. 27, 1799. I HAVE read DABOLL'S SCHOOLMASTER'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.]
I HAVE given some attention to the work above men. tioned, and concur with Mr. Professor Meigs in his opinion of its merit.

Rhode Island College, Nov. 30, 1799. I HAVE run through Mr. Davoll's SCHOOLMASTER'S ASSISTANT, and have formed of it a very favourable opinion. According to its original design, I think it well “ calculated
furnish Schools in general with a methodical, 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 Mathematics. [Now President of that Institution.]
