Patterson's Common School Speller has had and is now having an enormous sale, for the reason that it is the best Speller ever published in this country.
1st. It has the Choicest Selection of words.

3d. It has admirable Dictation Exercises, and is adapted to the most improved methods of instruction.
Patterson's Speller, and Analyzer, and School
This is an enlarged edition of the SPELLER AND ANALYZER. A new section on the “ Derivation of Words” has been added, which, it is believed, will take the place of the large and expensive etymologies now in use. The book as first issued met with such universal approval and is so extensively used that the author did not feel at liberty to make any changes other than to add a new part.. As the work has been simply enlarged, and not revised, the books now in use need not be exchanged for new ones. The price remains the same.
Patterson's Elements of Grammar with Practical
Exercises. By Prof. CALVIN PATTERSON, author of “Patterson's Common School Speller,” &c., &c.
Prof. PATTERSON has spent about 2 years in preparing this book. It is an effort to make the study of Grammar attractive, and to embody that which is really good in the Language Lesson System with the older and more rigid rules of Grammar. We believe that the effort has been successful, and that this is the best teaching book on this subject ever published.
