NOTICES OF WILLSON'S UNITED STATES.
From the Pennsylvania Enquirer. “ We believe it to be by far the most accurate school-history of the United States ever published. The style of the work will be found peculiarly clear and concise and at the same time easy and attractive."
p'rom the Courier and Journal, Albany. “ An improvement upon any history of the United States of the kind that we havo met. It is comprehensive enough to give a full idea of the subject, and is brief enough not to be tedious to the pupil. Besides, it is accurate and reliable in its facts."
From the New Jersey Advocate. “A work superior, in many respects, to all that have preceded it, as a text-book of American History." Narragansett Fort and Swamp.
From the Poughkeepsia Journal,
“ Willson's Historical Works will confer a lasting benefit
From the Newark Daily Advertiser.
“ If the present work is not all that we desire, it is, we are persuaded. the nearest approximation to a true standard of School-History that has as yet been made."
From the New York Observer.
“Mr. Willson is favorably known by his United States History, which is distinguished for its accuracy and comprehen. siveness."
From the American Journal of Education. “We know of no other volume of American History which is so accurate, and at the samo time so full."
From the Book Committee, Cincinnati. “The Text-Book Committee having examined Marcius Willson's History of the United States, would hereby recommend it as a suitable book for the use of the Common Schools the city. We would sniggest, that hereafter it should be used in the place of Mrs. Willard's Abridgment. The work now recommended is one of great accuracy, clear and forcible style, and the arrangement of the work is natural. The marginal dates, (new style,) as here arranged, we consider of great importance to a school-book, when dates are laught as a part of Common School Instruction.
On the 2u1 February, 1847, the Board of Trustees and Visitors of the Common Scoobls of Cincinnati unanimously adopted the following resolution :-
" Resolne, That the United States History, by Marcius Willson, be, and the same is hereby adopted by the Board of Trustees and Visitors, as the text-book to be used in the Common Schools of Cincinnati, in place of the Abridgment, by Mrs. Willard.”
