ADVERTISEMENT.

Since the publication of the Author's Series of Readers, he has been solicited, by those interested in elementary instruction, to furnish a primary reading book, the lessons in which should be more simple and easy than those contained in his Third Class Reader, and in other respects an appropriate introduction thereto. In compliance with these wishes the following little volume has been prepared. The lessons commence with words of not more than three letters, and terminate with dissyllables. It is hoped the style and sentiment will be found easy, and intelligible, and interesting to the tender minds of those for whom it is designed, as well as conducive to their moral improvement.

It will be observed that to several of the first reading lessons, a spelling lesson also is subjoined.
