chief object is to furnish useful and appropriate exercises for reading aloud. To this end, a great variety of prose and poetry, of varied rhetorical style, embodying the different emotions to which the human heart is susceptible, is essential.

Fully aware of the urgent demand for fresh selections, the compiler has introduced many that are new, and, she believes, not found in other Readers. With a genuine friendship, however, for some of the standard pieces, which are familiar to all and dear to many, she cannot willingly cast them aside.

The Introduction is merely suggestive of different styles found in the Reader.

The Selections marked for Expression are rather a summary of principles noted and illustrated in detail in the "Manual," and suggest the plan of studying each piece before reading, with special regard to one or more of the principles necessary to a correct and impressive rendering.

The compiler cannot but wish for the Reading Selections the same cordial reception which has greeted the Manual.

PHILADELPHIA, August 1st, 1878.
