the Citizens of the United States of North America, especially Teachers and Students,In the five preceding editions of his Latin Grammar, the author has attempted to show the absolute necessity of students laying a firm and durable foundation of classic literature of being instructed in the knowledge of the first principles of being inured to habits of diligence and accuracy and of doing every thing according to rule He has likewise striven to show, that nothing is gained by a precipitate superficial progress, that youth should never proceed to any part of study without a distinct knowledge of what should go before, that such is the effect of a sound foundation, that one even of moderate parts, carefully and well instructed, will acquire real benefit in one year, than another of superior abilities, but who is hurried superficially through his studies, can in the course of two or even three years for, How may boys learn the quickest By making them perfect in the elements of the language at the very first, and never suffering them to go a step farther till this is effected Prompted by an earnest desire to contribute his assistance in the education of the youth, whom he wishes to be instructed in the best manner, by paying the strictest attention to first principles and firmly adhering to these, the result of long observation, and very considerable experience, he now commits the sixth edition of his book to the public, and especially to those gentlemen, with whom he has long had the honour of being acquainted who, convinced of the usefulness of his Grammar, have kindly recommended it and others have introduced it into their respective colleges, seminaries, and academies He can indeed assure them, that, deeply concerned for the success of classical learning in our country, and through an earnest desire to deserve well both of it and of his kind patrons, to whom he owes so much, he has been careful, in publishing this new edition, to consult anew the best authorities, has been diligent in his researches, to discover what might be helpful, and trusts that he shall evince to those who are good judges of the subject he is handling, that he has spent his time to good purpose, that improvements in this edition have been effected, which will prove beneficial to the American youth, in acquiring the first principles of Latin Grammar For the sake of those who have not previously acquired a correct knowledge of the rudiments of the English language he has inserted in this work some of the most remarkable peculiarities of it, so that the student, in reading, speaking and writing may be led to notice and regard them and, on the whole, may be able to parse English with the greatest precision and exactness He who is taught the Latin in a proper manner, cannot but understand English grammatically According to the sentiments of some of the most learned and elegant scholars, Latin Grammar ia not only the best, but the only complete introduction to a critical and accurate knowledge of the English Grammar and language Nor is this all He, who has learned the Latin Grammar perfectly, will be well prepared to commence the study of the Greek and Hebrew languages He, who does not understand Latin so well as to be able to write and parse it tolerably well, is not fit to enter upon the study of Greek if he does, he will make poor proficience The Latin Grammar, the essential book for sound instruction in classical learning, has been, indeed, the common source from which all the modern tongues have borrowed and a correct knowledge of it, because it comprises the principles of universal grammar, enables the student to learn any of the modern languages, in a short time this is clearly evident from the sound and quick proficience those make, who have been thoroughly acquainted with Latin and Greeky previously to their entrance into the French but let the student never commence the study of French, till he has read with tbe greatest accuracy the Greek and Latin classics, which, under a skillfull teacher, he can do in a little than four years The study of the French prematurely must always prove adverse to the study of the Greek and Latin languages Some teachers and learned gentlemen, who wish to have re spect paid to their judgment, may possibly suggest that this Grammar is too long, and therefore will prove discouraging to our American youth, who are so much used to a short course in all the parts of education A short course, that is now so highly extolled in some parts of our country, may possibly do in teaching the living languages but will never answer any good purpose in teaching the Latin and Greek I adventure to say, that Collectanea and Abridgmenta of institutes, especially of Greek and Latin are injurious, and eventually tend to smattering, which produces the prostration of true learning, in all the schools, academies, colleges and universities, into, which it is suffered to enter a little learning is dangerous May the inhabitants of these United States, our dearly beloved country, living under a constitution framed by patriotic freemen, never lose sight of our true interest, and superior rank May we ever love sound learning, justice, and temperance may we abstain from avarice, pride, and luxury and, whatever other nations may do, let us be found truly learned and wiscf just temperate and merciful JAMES ROSS
