WILLIAM D. SWAN, ESQ. :

Dear Sir-Accept my thanks for a copy of your series of Readers, which you have kindly sent me as they were issued from the press. I have carefully examined these volumes myself, and have heard, in private, the uniformly favorable opinions of many gentlemen well qualified to judge of their merits. Allow me to say, that I think they are admirably adapted to the objects for which they are designed, and that I heartily recommend them to the favor of all interested in the cause of English education.

Very respectfully, yours,
THOMAS SHErwin.

WILLIAM D. SWAN, ESQ. :

Dear Sir-I have examined your series of Reading Books, and am happy to say that I am much pleased with them. The plan seems to me admirably fitted to accomplish the important work of developing the organs of speech, and of securing a graceful and easy elocution. I cordially commend the books to the attention of teachers and school committees.
