This rudimentary volume of Accidence and Exercises has been written at the request of a considerable number of Masters of large Schools, to whom even the First Latin Exercise Book ? did not seem sufficiently elementary, or rather did not supply a sufficient quantity of the very elementary examples required to keep children employed during the first year or so of their Latin training.
Personally, I should have preferred to exclude from an Exercise Book all examples not containing a Verb. I am aware, however, that an author writing a book by request is under an obligation to comply with the wishes of his friends, instead of airing his own particular fancies; and I shall be very glad, therefore, if Exercises 1-16 are found of use.
