A. TESTIMOIVIAIi.

(From Bayard Taylor, the Poet, Cedarcroft, Kennett Square, July 223, 1870.) I take great pleasure in recommending to parents the Academy of Mr. Swlthin C. Shortlidge. I have had an opportunity for several years past of observing the manner in which the Academy is conducted, as well as the deportment of the pupils who attend it, and am satisfied that nothing is neglected which can further both the intellectual and moral development of the latter.

TESTIMONIALS.

22 nerbert Place, Dublin, January 8th, 1875.

Dear Mr. Kkrxax: Since the time of the accomplished Professor Spauldingiof whom I had the honor of being a favorite pupil in school darn), I have taken deep Interest In the subject of Reading and Elocution.

I shall not easily forget the effect produced by your welltrain'Ml elocutionary power in the rendering of Watson's touching- lines " Beautiful Snow," and "The Vagabond*.'1 by Trowbridge. The transitions from the address to the auditory to that to the poor dog. the faithful companion of the mendicant, were most artistically managed.

Wishing you success, and a prosperous vovage to your na-
tive land, and hoping that you will some time forward me
American papers giving accounts of your professional career,
I remain, dear Mr. Keenan, Faithfully yours.

Charlk3 Edward Tiadai.i*
Chancellor of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.

"Mr. Keenan's gifts as an elocutionist are of a very high order, and have received the approbation of large audiences, both in England and Ireland, with a full, clear, musical voice, skillfully trained to express all the lights and shades of emotion, from the pathetic to the humorous, he combines admirable dramatic action, neither exaggerated nor theatrical, bur remarkable for that truth of expression which is most effective In bringing the feelings of the audience into perfect sympathy with both the author and the reader". — Lady Wildb in. i Ik- Dublin Nation.

Philadelphia, January 10th, 1R78'_
