PREFACE.

In this fifth edition of the “ PRINCIPLES OF ELOCUTION” all the directions and exercises have been again revised, and to a great extent re-written.

Much new matter has also been added, including the entire series of " READING EXERCISES MARKED FOR EMPHASIS, CLAUSE, AND Pitch” (pp. 145 to 156). The work is

as perfect as the Author's best efforts can make it. In this form, therefore, it has been for the first time electrotyped in preparation for continued and extended use.
