This little book begins with a "simple elucidation of the elemental functions of the body in the expression of sentences." The author has been engaged in the study and teaching of elocution, based on the Fennell method, for the past sixteen years and is therefore in a position to write ex cathedra on the subject.

The action of the body in respiration is clearly stated, the philosophy of vocalization in singing, reading and speaking is given in easy lessons, and the work, on that account, will be found useful for young scholars, and perhaps for those children of larger growth whose habits of speech are not too firmly fixed to be changed.
