MY gratitude to publishers who have generously permitted the reprinting of copyrighted selections I would here publicly express. To Little, Brown & Company I am indebted for the use of the extract called “Eloquence,” which is taken from a discourse by Daniel Webster; to Small, Maynard & Company for the poem “A Conservative,” taken from a volume by Mrs. Gilman, entitled “In This Our World"; to the Lothrop, Lee & Shephard Company for the poems by Richard Burton; and to Longmans, Green & Company for the extract from the works of John Ruskin; to Mitchell Kennerley for the selections from the works of George D. Herron. The selections from Sill and Emerson are used by permission of, and by special arrangement with, Houghton, Mifflin & Company, publishers of their works. The Noyes poems are used by permission of, and by special arrangement with, Frederick A. Stokes Company.
The quotations under headings “Exercises for Elemental Vocal Expression" and "Exercises for Transition," with a few exceptions, are taken from “The Sixth Reader,” by the late Lewis B. Munroe, and are here reprinted through the courtesy of the American Book Company.
