Explanatory Note

Explanatory Note.

The Manuscript of which the following pages are a revised edition, with considerable augmentations, was originally addressed by me in May 1870 to Dr. Leonhard Schmitz, Ph.D., LL.D., &c. &c., then Principal of the International College, Spring Grove, Isleworth, who had kindly expressed a desire to know my opinions in reference to the important subject of Scientific Education. To that Institution frequent allusions are made in my remarks, under the name of "The College," and to its organization my proposals were particularly intended to apply. Nevertheless, as the principles expressed embrace many social levels, and as my suggestions are mostly of an elastic character, I trust that both may prove a convenient platform of discussion to Educationalists, and occasionally supply useful indications to practical Educators.
