PREFACE.

A PROFICIENT scholar in German ought to be able to do four things well: first of all, to explain the whole structure of the language; next, to read German books; then, to speak correctly and with some fluency; and finally, to write a letter, or to translate a part of an English book into German, if possible at sight, without the assistance of Dictionary and Grammar. The greatest number of pupils master the three first points, but very few succeed in the last. It is acknowledged to be the most difficult of all. Now, in order to smooth the way towards acquiring it, I have undertaken this volume. It contains a variety of fragments, taken from good prose-writers, with notes, which both explain grammatical difficulties, and give a complete vocabulary, since it has been found, that small Dictionaries afford but insufficient aid, and the large ones, on account of the great number of meanings mentioned under one word, often impede and puzzle the student instead of guiding him.

For those who occasionally perceive, that they are unacquainted with certain principles of the German language, a course of Exercises on the chief parts of 'LE TH a rer 5 I aar; as Tere 2 போட்ட 25 5 2 is o கரங்கப் பட்ட = Eass கேக் ef
