Excerpt from The Study of Latin in the Preparatory Course The reason for passing them over is a twofold one: first, because they have been often and fully presented, and, second, because any discussion of the college work brings in at once the question of elective studies, - a question upon which the writer had warrant for entering. On the other hand, a statement of the meaning and purposes of Latin philology, and of the extent to which it has, without conscious choice on the part of teachers, made its way into the preparatory course, may t be without value. That is the purpose of this essay, - to show that Latin philology has a place in the definition of the study of Latin, and the title has therefore been changed to express this purpose.
