Excerpt from Abridgement of Murray's English Grammar: With an Appendix, Containing Exercises Designed for the Younger Classes of Learners
The Compiler of "English Grammar adapted to the different Classes of Learners," having been frequently solicited to publish an abridgement of that work, for the use of children commencing their grammatical studies, he hopes that the epitome, which he now offers to the public, will be found useful and satisfactory.
His chief view in presenting the book in this form, is, to preserve the larger work from being torn and defaced by the younger scholars, in their first study of the general outline which it prescribes; and consequently to render their application to each part both new and inviting. If a small volume is better adapted to the taste of children than a large one; and more readily engages their attention, from the apparent shortness of the road they have to travel, the Abridgement will thence derive additional recommendations. To give these arguments the greatest weight, the book is neatly bound, and printed with a fair letter, and on good paper.
A slight inspection of the manner hi which the work is executed, will show that it is not intended to supply the place or supersede the use of the original Grammar.
