PREFACE.

The incidents in History that have been selected for reading
in the Historical and Geographical Reader are such as possess
in themselves a graphic interest, capable of arresting the
attention of children of the age of those constituting Standard
V. in our Elementary Schools; while it is hoped that the
Geographical pieces will become word pictures in the memories
of the readers, and afford them delight not only in the
perusal, but in after times when quiet thought succeeds the
artive business of life.

may be clearly outlined in the student's mind; the writer has,
therefore, been content with clothing such a skeleton with
living flesh and blood, so as to fill in dry outlines with interest-
ing details, as furnished by our best Historical and Geographical
writers.

He was in great pain, and intensely anxious to know how the battle went. Will no one bring Hardy to me?' he asked, ‘he must be killed ! he is surely dead!' At length Hardy came, and the two friends shook hands in silence. After a pause, the dying man faintly uttered “Well, Hardy, how goes the day?' 'Very well; ten ships have already struck.' Finding that all was well,
