Excerpt from Specimens of English Composition: For Use in College Classes in Rhetoric and Composition The present volume contains a larger amount of material than is usually found in books of selections, and this gives the teacher who uses it elbow-room. His range of selec tion is large enough to permit him considerable freedom in the choice of the material he assigns. It is not to be expected that the individual teacher will agree with every thing that is said in the various articles (there is no reason why he should), nor that he will wish to use all of the selections; but he should find enough that is adapted to his needs to make the book useful to him and to his classes. It gives the editor great pleasure to acknowledge his indebtedness for valuable suggestions to his colleagues, Dr. George W. Benedict and Mr. William T. Hastings, to Messrs. Eliot G. Parkhurst and Laurence R. Grose, and for unfailing counsel and criticism, to Professor Lindsay T. Damon. To the following authors and publishers, who have permitted certain articles to be reprinted, he gives his hearty thanks: Mr. Chester Bailey Fernald and Pro fesser Paul Hanus; The Century Company, Houghton, Mitﬂin Co., The Outlook Company, Charles Scribner's Sons, The Atlantic Monthly Company, The John Lane Company, Brentano's, The Sun Publishing Association, D. Appleton Company, and Walter Baker Company. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
