IN the present Volume, which forms WATSON'S FIFTH READING BOOK, it has been the aim of the Publisher, as in all the Reading Books of the Series, to provide the young with volumes adapted not only to impart a knowledge of the mere art of reading but to train the pupils to the love of reading. Keeping this in view, the Selections to be found in the following pages will no doubt prove both attractive and instructive to the youthful reader.

It has still been thought advisable to put the more difficult words of the Prose Pieces at the head of each, in order that the reading may be facilitated, and these words ought in every case to be carefully gone over before any attempt be made to read the Lesson which follows.

It is hoped that the success and approval which have already attended the other Books of this Series, will be merited by, and extended to, the present effort.

GLASGOW, 1864.
