(cont.) The whole being recommended by several clergymen and eminent schoolmasters, as the most useful performance for the instruction of youth, is designed for the use of schools in Great Britain, Ireland, and in the several English colonies and plantations abroad.
Contents I. Words, both common and proper, from one to six syllables ... --II. A large and useful table of words, that are the same in sound, but different in signification; very necessary to prevent the writing one word for another of the same sound -- III. A short, but comprehensive grammar of the English tongue, delivered in the most familiar and instructive method of question and answer; necessary for all such persons as have the advantage, only of an English education -- IV. An useful collection of sentences in prose and verse, divine, moral, and historical; together with a select number of fables, adorn'd with proper sculptures, for the better improvement of the young beginners -- V. Forms of prayer for children, on several occasions.
