Excerpt from First Lessons in Geometry
The child's powers of sensation are developed before his powers of conception, and these before his reasoning powers. This is, therefore, the true order of education and a powerful logi cal drill, like Colburn's admirable first lessons of Arithmetic, is sadly out of place in the hands of a child whose powers of observation and conception have, as yet, received no training whatever. I have, therefore, avoided reasoning, and sirnply given interesting geometrical facts, fitted, I h0pe, to arouse a child to the observation of phenomena, and to the perception of forms as real entities.
