The Author, who wrote under its guidance, may dispense with any apology for the conciseness of his grammatical introduction, it is sufficient to assist the Student in writing thc practical exercises, and for this purpose only it has been written. In the list of irregular verbs, those which form their irregular tenses in one and the same manner, are placed together under the head of their model, and thus the difficulty of fixing them in the memory has been greatly facilitated.
