Excerpt from English Grammar: With an Improved Syntax; Part I, Comprehending at One View What Is Necessary to Be Committed to Memory; Part II, Containing a Recapitulation, With Various Illustrations and Critical Remarks; Designed for the Use of Schools
It may not be improper ... to remark, that, in preparing this work, the Author has used the common privilege of elementary writers: so far as it was convenient for his purpow, he has availed himself of the labours of his predecessors. For the omission of authors' names, it is perhaps unnecessary to apologize. From the altera Eions, says Mr. Murray in his Introduction to English Grammar, which have been frequently made in the sentiments and the language, to suit the connexion, and to adapt them to the particular purposes' for which they are introduced; and, in many instances, from the un certainty to whom the passages originally belonged, the insertion of names could seldom be made with proprie ty. But if this could have been geherally done, a work of this nature would derive no advantage from it, equal to the inconvenience of crowding the pages with a repez titicn of names and references.
