1810 TO THE SECOND EDITION.
The rapid circulation of this Grammar is some proof of its superiority over contemporary publications; and while the Author acknowledges with gratitude its adoption by several eminent Teachers in this country, he is no less under obligations to those Merchants and Traders who have increased its circulation by the export of large numbers to the Caraccas, as well as to the Peninsula; where the Author has the satisfaction of knowing that hisGrammar has not only proved an advantageous speculation to them, but has also been found highly acceptable and useful to the classes of Learners, namely the Commercial and Military, for whom it is more particularly adapted.
The honourable and rapidly increasing connexion between the British and Spanish Nations will, it is presumed, render its utility permanent: and with a view to the increase of that utility, as well as to manifest his sense of public favour, the Author has diligently revised his work throughout, and made such corrections and improvements therein as he deemed it capable of receiving.
