"I BELIEVE that the pupil cannot too soon be led on from words to sentences, and from unconnected sentences to a continuous narrative. With this view, I am preparing an edition of an easy Latin author, which he will be able to commence as soon as he has finished the Exercises in this volume, and in which he will find several important rules, which we have not yet been able to touch upon, both illustrated and explained."
This extract from my "Help to Latin Grammar will serve, in some measure, to show the aim and purpose of the present work. It is intended to supply the pupil with an easy Construing-book, which may, at the same time, be made the vehicle for instructing him in the rules of grammar and principles of composition. It appears to me that these branches of the study of Latin have hitherto been kept too much apart. Boys have construed their Delectus, or Eutropius, or Nepos; and have gone elsewhere for their grammatical exercises.
