Overview

Excerpt from Via Latina: An Easy Latin Reader

Both these errors are glanced at in the report of the Latin Conference to the Committee of Ten in 1892. In recommending a lengthening of the Latin preparatory course, the Conference says: The aggregate of one thousand or twelve hundred hours is much below the average in the schools of England, France, and Germany. The explanation of the undeniable fact that, in the coun tries just named,. Latin has been more successfully employed than with us as an instrument for training the mind to habits of intellectual conscientiousness, patience, discrimination, and thoroughness, in a word, to habits of clear and sound thinking, - doubtless lies partly in the more liberal allowance of time.
