PREFACE.

I HAVE endeavoured in this book to construct accurate definitions, such as the pupil will do well to commit to memory, and to base every classification, as well as the general arrangement of the work, upon simple logical principles.

A teacher of grammar should never fail to keep in view the importance of defining and classifying logically.

For the guidance of teachers, and for the assistance of self-taught students, five sets of exercises and examination questions have been added.

The chapters on English Composition are entirely new, and have been produced mainly by preserving and arranging corrections of mistakes made by my own pupils in their examination papers and exercises on this subject. The chapters on English Grammar remain as in the previous edition, except that a few definitions and explanations have been simplified, and additional examples have been inserted.

I desire thankfully to acknowledge much valuable assistance received in the Grammar from the lectures of the Rev. Samuel Clark, the late Principal, and from many suggestions of the Rev. Evan Daniel, the present Principal, of this College.
