The Revised Elementary Spelling Book

Excerpt from The Revised Elementary Spelling Book No better Spelling-book than Dr. Webster's has ever been presented to the American people. The unparalleled extent of its circulation furnishes ample proof of the high estimation in which it is held by an enlightened public. For many years it has been almost the only Spelling-book used in the Southern States, as well as in other sections of the old Union; and his Dictionary may be found in almost every family, occupying, as it deservedly does, a pre-eminence over all others. Hut those friendly relations which once existed between the Northern and Southern States have been severed by a protracted, unjust and oppressive Federal legislation, and thus we have been driven from them, and the channel through which we have, hitherto, been accustomed to obtain our supplies is now closed by blockade; the offspring of an unjustifiable and tyrannical war, which is waged against us by those who should have continued to be our friends. Driven from them never to return, we ask, what must now be done to meet the wants of our Schools? This is an important question. When the compiler conceived the idea of preparing a Spelling-book to meet fully the necessities of the country, he soon became convinced that to make a better book than Webster's would be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible. It occurred to his mind that a revised edition of the Elementary Spelling book, adapted to the wants of the people of the Confederate States of America, would be all that could be desired.
