Excerpt from Lessons on Elocution: Accompanied by Instructions and Criticisms on the Reading of the Church Service

IT 13 deeply to be regretted that, notwithstanding the many valuable works published in ancient and modern times on elocution and the art of reading, this branch of education 1s so generally neglected in our seminaries of learning. Among the ancients, the art of public speaking was cultivated with the utmost de gree of assiduity and skill; men of commanding ta lents and influence were the masters of it: and by attending upon the instructions of the academy, and the exercises of the forum, the youth of Greece and Rome were trained up to use with wonderful effect, their powers of reasoning, in the debates of the Senate, and those of persuasion, in addresses to popular as semblies.
