Excerpt from The Modern Elocutionist

Lately it has been suggested to me on all sides, by the Principals of Schools, Pupils, and friends in Trinity College, that it would be desirable to compile a new Elocutionist. At first I was unwilling so to do, on account of the number of books of like nature - some of them very capital volumes - already before the public but at length I determined to undertake the task, with the object in view of bringing together more modern, or less-known, selections, eminently suitable for the desired purpose.

This task I have endeavoured to accomplish, avoiding those recita tions which, however beautiful many of them undoubtedly are, yet have become so hackneyed as to be wearisome, owing to constant repetition that repetition not being in all cases pleasing to the ear nor intelligible to the understanding.

How I have accomplished my object I leave my readers to decide.

A very hearty word of thanks is more than due to those authors and publishers. Who have so generously and willingly placed their works at my disposal, and without whose kind co-operation many of the following pages could not have been inserted. Elsewhere, throughout the book, my obligations to them severally are acknowledged in detail.

I have been most anxious to avoid violation of copyright in my selections, and have used my utmost endeavours to ascertain the various possessors of the rights appertaining thereto. Should there, however, be any unconscious infringement, I desire to express my deep regret, and trust that such an error may be kindly overlooked and forgiven.

A double Index will be found - one in the early part of the volume, comprising the selections generally, another at the conclusion, containing the names of the authors alphabetically arranged.
