    Excerpt from The Mercantile Arithmetic, Adapted to the Commerce of the United States, in Its Domestic and Foreign Relations: With an Appendix, Containing Practical Systems of Mensuration, Gauging, and Book-Keeping

    Every one is bound by his duty to himself and others, to keep accounts; and in order to this, he must have some acquaintance with the systems of arrangement and method, which have been divised by experience. Irregular memo randa are, from the difficulty of reference, almost useless. This consideration has led him to give a general outline of Book-keeping, comprehending, in his view, the necessary principles, in so plain a manner, that any one, by careful attention, may understand the true theory of accounts, and apply the principles to practice without much hesitation or dificulty. Convinced that no one need be at a loss to keepclear and satisfactory accounts, who has a just idea of the nature of the subject, he has endeavoured to explain it with all possible precision and simplicity. This part of the work is entirely new, and he hapes, the manner qf arrangement will attach a particular value to it. The different forms used by merchants are as various, as the demands of their business; but as all are reducible to the great principle of classing the several transactions under suitable heads, in such a way, that the state of cne's property or business may be easily examined and known, this compendium may be a safe guide for a person of discernment to follow in any cir cums'tances.

    Nothing need be said of the propriety of the brief tracts of practical Mensaration and Gauging, which are annexed to the work. Such knowledge is as important and requisite, as most rules of arithmetic, and what is inserted is adapted to common purposes.

    As the work is now under the author's control, he trusts that in future editions it will be more and more improved with whatever may occur, as conducive to its original de sign of rendering mercantile calculations easy and familiar. In schools it may be studied in connexion with the popular treatises of mental Arithmetic, or as a sequel to them, as will best suit the views of instructors.
