To the Teachers of Common Schools in the State of N. Y. GENTLEMEN:

I am no strarger to the difficulties which embarrass your official la : bours, nor to the consequent anxieties which disturb your peace of mind. Twenty years experience in the same thorny pursuit has made me famil. iar with all the diversity of evils which surround your path and block up your way to usefulness in your laudable avocation.

I will not, however, stop to enumerate those evils, but will venture to assert that the most prominent of the whole list, are those which grow out of the great and increasing variety of elementary books which flood the country, and lodge, by a kind of eddying force, in the institutions over which you preside. This multitude of similar yet unlike productions, increases your labours, divides your attention, perplexes your decisions, embarrasses your operations, mars the order of your proceedings, paralizes your efforts and prostrates your usefulness. To this source may also be traced the frequent and well founded dissatisfaction expressed by parents; the loud and long complaints of pupils; and the consciousness that, although you call into requisition your best endeavours, and the most persevering exertions, you accomplish but little.

In view of these considerations, and at the instance of our late excellent governor, I some time since, commenced the compilation of a course of elementary studies, suited, as I believe, to the wants of the great body, of pupils intrusted to your care, and calculated to supercede the incongruous medley now in use, and, consequently, remedy the evils which are so generally felt and so freely confessed.
