Previous to the meeting of the late State Teachers’ Institute, I made arrangements with a competent person to secure a full phonographic report of all the proceedings. Unfortunately this arrangement failed, in consequence of a sudden and imperative call for the phonographer to leave San Francisco on the second day of the session. Defeated tbus in my purpose to have a full report of all the doings and discussions of the Institute, I was willing to be satisfied with the publication in the California Teacher of the report of the proceedings furnished by the worthy Secretary, Mr. Dakin. But so many persons, whose opinions are entitled to my respect, have expressed a desire for the publication of several of the addresses delivered before the Institute, that I have thought proper to yield to their wishes, and have issued tbis volume in the hope that it will do good. In several instances, a request was made that extemporaneous addresses before the Institute should be written out for publication, but the speakers, it seems, had too much diffidence or too little leisure to comply.
The fact stated at the beginning of the foregoing paragraph will account for the delay of this publication.
