SIR,

I am

I have read the “Essentials of Spelling" with much interest and pleasure. It contains a great mass of useful information ; and the somewhat unwieldy subject of English Spelling is so skilfully handled that I can well believe that the little manual has found favor in the eyes of practical schoolmasters. always glad when I see the results of scientific research begin to be utilised by practical teachers. Nothing, after all, is easier to teach than the truth; and if tho principles of the Science of Language are true, they are sure to be adopted, in time, for the practical teaching of languages.

I accept the dedication of your work with much pleasure, and remain

Yours very faithfully,

MAX MÜLLER.

To E. JONES, Esq.
