HE mathematical World will, I doubt not, be surprizei at a frech publication of the Elements of Geometry, by one entirely unknown ; and, on a plan very different from that of others who have wrote on the Subject. I hope they will suspend their opinion, and not pass a too hafty censure, on account of the obscurity of the Author, till after they have given it a fair and candid perusal, and then proceed to judgment with candour and impartiality.

I do not pretend to much knowledge in the Mathematics, having been brought up in a way of life, very different from my inclination ; yet, what time I could spare from business and the demands of my family, I chose to employ in such studies; and have, by dint of study, only, and without any other instruction, made some progress in mathematical Sciences; of which, Geometry is the first, and a sure key to the rest.

Since I have made myself, by self-application, a Proficient in Geometry, and have in.ade some branches of the Alathematics my Study and Profession, I have often been surprized at the negligence and deficiency of our common Schools, for the cultivation of Youth who are intended to fill the middle sphere of Life, in mechanic Trades, &c. They, almost in general, pursue one common Plan or track of Learning. After the first and necessary branches, Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic; which, indeed, might be acquired in half the time it usually is; the next step (if the Pupil has made a progress thro’ Arithmetic in any reafonable sime) is the Grammar of the Latin Tongue through which, he sweats and labours to little purpose. If the Pupil bas three or four years to spare, before he goes out to business, he perhaps gets into the Cordery or Erasmus ; or, if he reaches Cornelius Nepos, he is looked on as a prodigy.

Now, it may reasonably be asked, for what purpose all this Time has been spent ? which might have been employed to much
