Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Hours With Girls If I repeat the word system, I am prepared to hear some of you say, Oh, do not come to us with that old story. We have been told to be systematic from our cradles, and really there is nothing which we are so tired of hearing. Patience, dear girls. I can sympathize with that one of you who said to me the other day, I am emancipated at last! I have spent six years of rou tine at boarding-school, my life measured by the sound of bells; a bell for this recitation, and a bell for that; and now I am free. But, she acknowleged frankly, I confess that I don t know what use to make of my freedom. There is a sort of reaction which most young people experience when, after graduation, they find themselves absolved from attendance upon the will of teachers and governors, and it finds expression in some such manner as this. Yet no conscientious and thoughtful person can long be contented to drift aimlessly through life. That training amounts to little which has trained towards nothing; and the best school, if it has simply crammed, and not given force and im pulse to right and unselfish and generous endeavor, has written itself a failure.

Book Description American Tract Society, New York, 1881. Decorative Cloth. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Copyrighted in 1881, but the cover design is clearly that of a later edition. Identified as one of the publisher's "Imperial Series." 162 pp. Orange cloth with a decorated cover in a poster style one would associate with the 1895-1905 period. On the front cover in black and yellow, a well-dressed boy and girl are studying at a table with a yellow sky and dark trees outlined in the background. There is a designer's monogram which appears to be a combined "H" and "E" followed by "F" that we were not able to identify. The spine also has a decorated scene. Our copy has lightly age-faded pages and no other markings. The book is clean and the cover design is in nice condition. Seller Inventory # 000963
