Excerpt from A New Second Latin Book
But the right of Caesar to occupy not alone the center of the stage but the whole stage as well, in the second year of Latin study, has been justly and successfully challenged. During the last few years a very general call has been heard for an easier, better graded, richer second year program in Latin than the study of Caesar alone affords. Not only have secondary teachers urged this change, but college professors and administrative officers have generally approved the plan, and accepted this more varied program in lieu of their long established requirements in Caesar.
The Second Latin Book which is herewith presented to the public, is intended to meet this need. It makes no pro fessions of originality so far as the plan is concerned of presenting selections from other authors supplementary 'to Caesar. Its reason for existence lies in the consistent work ing out of this plan: in the attempt to make the work of this most critical period in the study of Latin so attractive that the student will be drawn on by a real pleasure in the work itself; so well-graded, that he will never find it hope lessly beyond his powers; so varied, that he will never lose interest through the monotony of his task.
