The accurate instruction of youth in the elementary principles of your language, and the great importance of early instilling into their minds morality and piety, form the basis of my motive in recommending to parents and school teachers, a book entitled “The New Instructor” compiled by Asa Rhoads. It is a work of much merit; particularly on account of the great number and rarity of words, properly accented and defined, and the judicious selections of pieces for reading, calculated to purify the heart, to form the taste, and instruct, as well as amuse the mind. In short, the fore-mentioned needs but be read, to be approved by all [?] of learning, morality, and piety.

Philander Chase, Rector of Christ’s Church, Poughkeepsie, and Trinity Church, [?]
