First, in which have been introduced numerous tables and diagrams, explaining the parts of speech in a • more systematic form than Prof. Duffet had attempted. Short rules have also been given where deemed advisable, and many of the original rules have been re-worded.

PART SECOND has called for very few changes aside from the introduction of Tables and Diagrams. The order of the Rules of Syntax has been maintained.

The verbs have also been left in the order given by Prof. Duffet, and the same classification retained. We have, however, given an enlarged formation of the tenses, adding numerous references to the same, thereby doing away, to a very great extent, with the mechanical memorizing of the irregular verbs. Various other minor changes have also been made in the verbs, mostly through the introduction of Tables and Diagrams.

We hope that this revised edition of Prof. Duffet's French Method will continue to receive the same degree of favor accorded to the original work, and that the new features will prove to be useful to the teachers and students of the language.
