THE former impressions of The Americàn Tutor's Assistant having been well received by the public, the Proprietor has been induced to revise it, and has now made some amendments and additions, which he presumes will render it more acceptable to teach

ers.

To avoid increasing the size and price of the book, some parts have been omitted, to make room for matter considered of more essential use.

To this edition is added, a course of Book-keeping, according to the method of Single Entry, with a description of the bcoks, and directions for using them.

Much attention has been given to the revision and correction of the work, and the errors which had escaped notice in the former are corrected in this edition.
