POETICAL PREFACE
TO THE



Frmsm PLjTUWLE ALPHABET.



TO PRECEPTORS.

W ITl learning may laughter be found;
r"'Tis good to be merry and wise;"
To gayly ect over the ground,
As higher and higher we rise.

Some children their letters may learn,
Whlile others will surely do more,
As the subjects suggestively turn
To matters not thought of before.

Descriptions and pictures combined
Arc here made attractive and clear;
So suited that children may find
From error the truth to appear.
