To meet in some degree this demand these essays and principles are given to the public, with the natural wish of any one who takes charge of a work of this character that, instead of being a mute, it had a voice and could speak.

However irrelevant may appear to the novitiate some of the things suggested in this book as useful for practice, he may be assured that the experience of the author during almost a lifetime of teaching has found them not only necessary, but fruitful of good results; and nothing but what has been proved to be altogether essential has found place in this work.
