[The words contained in the subjoined list are frequently mispronounced. The correction is purposely omitted, in order that it may be made by the pupil himself on consulting a dictionary. It is thought that a little pains in looking out the word, will be more likely to make him remember the correction. A portion of the list may be given with each of the reading lessons, until the whole is thoroughly impressed on the memory.]
