“Burlington, N. J., 11th mo. 6th, 1845.

“ Willson's I'istory of the United States for the American

use of Schools, I have read through with peculiar Artillery

satisfaction. If any other book, compiled for the same purpose, equals it in combining brevity with

clearness of detail, impartiality with a manly regard for national interests, elevation of style with the simplicity due to youth, and especially geography with history, I am not acquainted with it.

**The writer seems to be imbued with a just percepti-n of the wants of the schclar and the facilities due to the teacher.
