Excerpt from Greek Prose Phrase-Book: Based on Thucydides, Xenophon, Demosthenes, Plato

Tms book owes its origin chiefly to the numerous letters I have received since publishing the English translation of Meissner's 'latin phrase-book,' suggesting the advie ability of a similar compilation for Greek prose. It is similar to Meissner, but with the difference that it is not so elaborate and does not profess to contain every thing, its object being rather to stimulate a boy's own activity and suggest that he should add more phrases from his own reading, - it is for this purpose that the book has been interleaved. Boys ought to do something for themselves towards scholarship. They nowadays ex pect to have everything done for them.
