Excerpt from The Dictionary Appendix and Orthographer
"This book is very painstaking, and those who are frequently puzzled in the spelling of the participles will find the work invaluable. We cordially recommend this book."
"The best educated will not reject this 'Dictionary Appendix' as a study companion; and those also whose education is only in progress, will find it an excellent help. The inflections of the verbs are often very perplexing. Here, in all difficult words, they will be found at a glance, which will save many a precious moment.
"Rules are given for spelling the participles of verbs, and such words as are not found in the dictionary. The rules are only ten, and so constructed, that seven of them are without a single exception: the other three (first, sixth and eighth) contain every one of the exeptions, which renders the work at once simple and comprehensive.
"The plan of the work may be indicated by a single word, 'ballot, balloted, balloting.' Opposite the word will be found the figure 6, which points to the rule by which the spelling is determined.
"We give this work our hearty recommendation."
