PUBLISHED BY GOULD AND NEWMAN.

Entered according to act of Congress, in the year 1831, by FLAGG AND GOULD,
in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of Massachusetts.
TO THE SIXTH EDITION.
Ir is now nine years since the first edition of this work was given to the public. Within this period, five editions have been exhausted, and a sixth is now called for. Since the appearance of the last edition Dr. Porter has been removed by death; consequently the present has not the benefit of his superintendence. The Porter Rhetorical Society, has now the exclusive charge of the work;—the copyright having been presented to it by the Author several years since. Were Dr. Porter now living to direct the publication of the work, some alterations, it is believed, would be made in the "Exercises," but no definite directions having been left by him, the Committee of the Rhetorical Society do not feel authorized to make any changes. The present edition is therefore an exact reprint of the last, nor will future editions undergo any alteration.
