"ALMOST IDEALLY PERFECT."
Extract from a Letter from Dr. H. W. THOMAS, Pastor of the People's Church,
CHICAGO, April 8, 1890.
One could wish that he were a child again, that he might go to the schools and have before him the books that are published for the children and youth of our time. I have found great pleasure and profit in examining HARPER'S READERS. From the first to the last volume they are almost ideally perfect; and in the more than a thousand pages there is not one improper or hurtful word or sentiment. All is pure, helpful, ennobling; and the mind is led along by easy and natural steps from the simplest sentences to the higher and more difficult forms of thought and expression as used by the best authors. H. W. THOMAS.
