It was the aim of Professor Hadley in his Greek Grammar (founded on the Griechische Schulgrammatik of GEORG CURTIUS) to furnish a manual which should be sufficient for the use of college students in their most advanced study of the language. It was hoped, however, that the book would be found at the samo time not ill adapted to the purposes of elementary instruction; that the teacher, aided by the differences in type, would find it easy to distinguish those leading facts and principles which should engage the first attention of the learner. Many teachers have expressed the conviction, founded on their own experience, that the book could be used in this way with satisfactory results. From others, however, the publishers have had communications expressing their desire for an abridged grammar, as being in their judgment better suited to the wants of the beginner. It bas seemed just that those who entertain this latter view should have a textbook such as they desire. Accordingly they will find in the following pages a very carefully prepared Abridgment of Professor Hadley's Grammar.
In reducing the size of the work, it has often appeared necessary, or at least convenient, to modify its phraseology. Cases will also be found, in which it has been thought expedient, for one reason or another, to change more than the mere form of expression. But the instances are few in which the mode of treatment has been essentially altered.
