FOREWORD.

THIS pamphlet is issued in response to a demand from teachers who desire a greater variety in selections than is to be found in the editor's FROM MILTON TO TENNYSON. The kind reception accorded to that work emboldens him to hope that this brochure will be found useful.

Corrections and suggestions for the betterment of a possible second edition will be thankfully received by the editor or by his publishers.
