Excerpt from First Book in Composition, Applying the Principles of Grammar to the Art of Composing: Also, Giving Full Directions for Punctuation; Especially Designed for the Use of Southern Schools
No subject is more difficult to the mind of the Pupil, than that of Compositio... n; and yet, strange as it may seem, he is usually ex. Pected to compose Without any assistance Whatever from books. Teachers have sometimes objected to the use of works on Composi tion, lest the mind of the pupil should be cramped, or the style should become artificial, but these are groundless objections. Every stu dent's style is compelled to be more or less artificial in acquirement and yet it may be perfectly natural in its disgosz'tion.
