This work is intended as a sequel to “Hawley's First Course of English Composition;" a book that contains only exercises for practice, without any attempt at theory. When the pupil has carefully gone through those exercises, he will have acquired some facility in expressing his ideas, and will then be in a position to be introduced to the theoretical part of the subject, which is familiarly treated in the fol. lowing pages.
As the epistolary style is the first kind of composition a child needs, “Subjects for Letters " are given immediately after the theory of Composition has been explained. Then follows the “ Turning of Verse into Prose,” an exercise that will be found highly advantageous in the cultivation of the pupil's style
