SYRACUSE, N: Y.
The articles in The School Bulletin which are here reprinted were written with a single purpose—to furnish public exercises to be used in schools, each of which should make upon every pupil present a distinct impression of the author named, his life, his character, his writings, and his distinctive place in literature. That they have served this purpose in hundreds of schools the letters that have come in from every direction testify. This volume gives them a more convenient form, and makes them available as a side-help for literature classes.
The articles will be continued in The School Bulletin, and will be reprinted annually in volumes like this, until the list embraces the best-known names in American literature. SYRACUSE, Dec. 28, 1897.
