Excerpt from A Latin Reader: Consisting of Selections From Phædrus, Cæsar, Curtius, Nepos, Sallust, Ovid, Virgil, Plautus, Terence, Cicero, Pliny, and Tacitus; With Copious Notes and Vocabulary

While the reading most in vogue for beginners has of late presented Latin chie¿y in its rhetorical compo sitiou and literary dialect, we have sought, by familiar letters and dramatic dialogue, to Show it as a living tongue dealing with real things. The drollery and fun of Plautus, the graver humor of Terence, the easy and cheerful courtesy of Pliny's letters, the downright hard-hitting of Marius's Speech before the people, seem to us a most desirable substitute for the weary and dreary narrative of the Gallic War, as most boys find it. And while, in the case of Cicero, a vein of insincerity runs through most of his formal writings, even in his philosophical dialogues, where he tries to per suade himself that he is a single-minded searcher for truth, his letters bring us into an other atmosphere. His fond domestic feeling, the despair of his exile, his frank pride in his public welcome back, and his heavy heart refusing to be comforted after his daughter's death, Show him in a more genuine and manlier way than the elaborate false pleading of the Milo, or the polished hollow compliment of the Marcellus.
