Voted That is expedient to introduce into the several schools in this School Society, Sanders' Saries of School Books, for the use of the schools as they may be Wanted.
HAMILTON BREWER, Secretary. After several months' dis ussion on the comparative merits of Sanders' and Cobb's School Rook:-refererce being had exclusively to merit—the Board of Education of the city of Brakly.), at their meeting in Oct., 1845, decided in favor of Sanders' Books, by a vote of 18 to 9. In announcing the result, the Brooklyn Eagle says: “We are gratified with this result, obtained as it has been after the most careful wnd thorough investigation. We doubt whether Mr. Sanders' Books fluve ever gone through a more trying ordeal, or received, in the end, a more convincing and decided mark of approbation than here, (the vote in their favor Reinz 2 to 1,); and we hope and trust that the matter will now be sufferod to rest.'
From John Griscom, Burlington, New Jersey, Having carefully looked over the Series of Reading Rouls for Schools, prepared by Charles W. Sanders, I have no hesitation in regarding them as compilations, exceedingly well adapted to promote in our common schools correct and enlightened habits of intonation, inflection, pauses, emphasis, and fluency of utterance. The Spelling and Definitions which precede each lesson, will facilitate the pupil's understanding of the meaning of his lessons, -and a point of more consequence than all, is, that the lessons are so selected as to imbue his mind with the love and the spirit of Christian morality, and enlightened views of social duty. Without instituting a comparison with other books, I think the guardians of youth will nazard nothing in adopting this series of Readers into their schools. Burlington, N. J., 12 mo., 18th, 1845.
JOHN GRISCOM. City of Chicago, Office of School Inspectors, June 28, 1845. Resolved, That Sanders' Series of School Books, consisting of Sanders' Primary School Primer, Spelling Book, 1st, 20, 30 and 4th Readers, be adopted for the use of the Common Schools in this city, and that all new purchases of books be of that series, so far as they are applicable to the wants of the schools.
Attest: GEO. W. MEEKER, Sec. A Committee appointed by the “Society of Teachers and Friends of Education in New Jersey," after several months of thorough and patient examination, unanimously reported in favor of Sanders' Series of School Books, which were adopted by the Society in New Brunswick, Dec. 1843.
From M. S. Converse, Principal of Elmira Academy. Of the " Series" of Books prepared by Mr. Sanders, I can speak def nitely, as they have been in use here since I have been in the institutionsome two years. We have been visited by “Book Agents” almost every month, still we have found none for which we wish to exchange them. Elmira, Aug., 1845.

of the young.
Middletown, Ct., July, 1845. There is an easy transition from the simple to the more difficult, and taking the series as a whole, I think it the best I have ever seen. The tong of the lessons is high, and well calculated to impress favorably the mind
S. CHASE, Principal Female Institute. From Alanson S. Phillips, County Superintendent of Schools for Steubens
County, New York. Bath, Sept., 1845. Having used the series of Elementary School Books compiled by Mr. C. W. Sanders, and having fully satisfied myself of their superior merits in several respects, over other works of the kind with which I am acquainted, I take great pleasure in recommending them to the use of Common Schools.
I think the Readers admirably adapted to the taste of young learners, tending directly to cultivate a love for reading, and to awaken in the juvenile mind the most pleasing anxiety for moral and intellectual improvement. I should be extremely happy to see them introduced into all the schools of my county.
ALANSON S. PHILLIPS. We fully concur in the opinion of the above books, expressed by Mr. Phillips:
N. M. PERRY; Geo. W. OTIS; E. N. Foote, M. D.; D. LATTIMORE; R. B. STEWART; Orson MOSIER; CHAUNCEY CASTON, M. D.; Town Superintendents, Steuben Co.
Vote of the Board of Education for the City of Dayton, Ohio. At a meeting of the Board of Managers of Common Schools for the City of Dayton, on the 8th of February, 1845, the following resolutior. was passed unanimously:
Resolved—That “Sanders' Series of Readers” be adopted as class books, to be used in the common schools of this city. D. H. BRUEN, Sec.
From the distinguished instructor, F. G. Carey, A. M., Principal of
Pleasant Hill Academy. Pasant Hill, Ohio, July 21, 1813. When I received the Series of School Readers by Sanders, my impression was, that there was no demand for any further addition to the many already in use. And under this impression I took up this series, and, after a critical examination, am constrained to say that it was entirely removed. I unhesitatingly give this series of books my decided preference, and as the best evidence of any regard, have introduced it, together with Sanders' Speller, into my institution.
F. G. CAREY. I hereby certify that Sanders' Primer and Sanders' Spelling Book are used in the Public Schools of this town; and I consider them among the best elementary books now in use.
