Text may be from 1875. The author is credited with a Master of Arts degree as as the author of Elementary Grammar and Practical Grammar of the English Language, and of the Grade-School Readers. A series of progressive lessons to teach third and forth grade students to express thoughts accurately and concisely and to criticize and avoid common inaccuracies. The work is an extension of the oral lessons from the author's Elementary Grammar. Grammatical terms are used sparingly. Students are provided with exercises in sentence making and composition. Some exercises give students words to arrange, while others use a few words, an illustration, or an object to spur composing. In addition to chapters on the parts of speech, the text also contains chapters on observation and description, writing from memory, changing verse to prose, and letter writing. The Schultz Archive copy is roughly the complete 80 page text.
