PREFACE.

The Third Edition of the 6 ELOCUTIONARY MANUALhaving been for some time out of print, and the work being still in steady demand, the Author has been induced to prepare a New Edition, with the improvements suggested by his long experience. Such a duty he cannot hope to be again called on to undertake ; and, as his “PRINCIPLES OF ELOCUTION”— first published in 1849— have had a manifest influence on subsequent elocutionary literature, he desires to extend and perpetuate that influence, by a final revision of the Theories and Exercises which were the fruit of original study and observation, thirty years ago.

TUTELO HEIGHTS, BRANTFORD,
