This work is brief, but comprehensive, containing all the important ideas of Elocution. Most works of its character are burdened with complicated rules and exceptions, so that but few, if any, attempt to master them. I have endeavored to avoid this serious defect, and to present a popular method, which every person at once comprehends and finds pleasure in perusing. · This work is published, in part, for my own use as a teacher of elocution, and also as a text-book for teachers and students generally. The directions for training and developing the vocal organs are explicit, and the selections for elocutionary practice varied, and from the best authors. An appreciation and use of these will result in a rich, full-toned voice, and a graceful and effective delivery.
