The success of The Standard Speaker having been such as to elicit from the public and the publisher a demand for a series of Speakers by the same author, and adapted to the different ages of pupils, the present volume has been prepared. It forms the second of a series of three; of which The Standard Speaker is the largest and most comprehensive, and The Primary Standard Speaker the smallest and most simple.
