Excerpt from Scrap-Book Recitation Series #2: A Miscellaneous Collection of Prose and Poetry for Recitation and Reading, Designed for Schools, Home and Literary Circles
For the purpose of elocutionary drill, we have inserted a few familiar standard pieces with reference to vo... ice transition and modulation. There will be found some original orations and descriptive pieces, arranged especially for this work. In each succeeding number we shall make originality in selections a more prominent feature than heretofore, giving only a very little mat ter that has ever appeared in books of this kind. Aside from the original articles, it will be our aim to gather mostly from private collections containing meritorious pieces which have not happened to find their way into the general print of the day.
