Excerpt from Grammar of the Latin Language

The Latin language is so rich and happy in its organization, and has been so consistently developed by the energetic spirit of the Roman people as well as by the exquisite tact of the Roman authors, that a continued study of it is amply re warded. It is now upwards of thirty years that I have been before the public as a writer on Latin grammar*; my varied studies have always led me back to this subject, and I may truly declare, that during each fresh revision of my grammar, when I was engaged in incorporating with my system the observations I had made in the meantime, and in considering the doubts and objections which had been raised in my mind, I have become more and more convinced of the inexhaustible mine of human wisdom whichpresents itself in the language of a happily organized nation like the Romans. I am not speaking here of the accidental matter contained in a grammar, nor of the accumulation of similar passages, - it will afford far greater pleasure to the pupil to discover for himself in the authors whose works he is reading passages which confirm or illustrate the rules he has learned, - nor of niceties of expression, for these are curiosities rather than any thing else, but I mean real philological discoveries and peculiarities, which arise from the organic structure of the language, derive their explanation from it, and in return throw light upon the whole fabric of the lan guage itself; and the result of all this is, that the general principles are better ascertained and established. It is owing to these continued studies that even the present translation of the ninth edition of. My Latin grammar has been enriched by some not unimportant improvements, which I have communi cated in ms. To Dr. Schmitz, and it will henceforth be our united endeavour to remedy every deficiency that may yet be found.
