Excerpt from Essays on Female Education

The following essays have been more particularly devoted to those branches, which have hitherto been only nominally introduced into female education, and which it is proposed to extend, not that they are most impor tant, but because it was thought unnecessary to dwell on those which are universally studied. Whilst it is proposed to carry female education to a greater extent - to open to those who have the time, inclination, and capacity, the same fountains of knowledge, from which the other sex draw: and to erect a standard which will awaken the spirit of emulatron, anti elevate the character of female education in all ranks of society; the neglect of those studies which have hitherto formed a part of it, has not escaped a just censure - That they might not be neglected, they have been made the first part of the course. No arrangement has been made of the ornamental branches of education, because it was found inconvenient to confine them to any particular time. Nor have they been examined as was at first proposed, because it would have extended our pages to too great a number. For the same reason, we have omitted to say any thing of the French language. The number who now study this language, the extensive introduction of French words into the English tongue, and the facility with which 'it may be learned gives it peculiar claims to our attention. The course pointed out and examined in the fol lowing pages, will be adopted in the Columbia Female Academy and carried out as far as warranted by public patronage. N o situation appears so eliga ble, as that of this institution. V'vhilst it is no less salubrious* than the surrounding country, it possesses all the advantages to be derived from a city. It is not the occasional sight of a city, that will confer upon a young lady its advantages. In all cities there is a circulation of general inior mation, and a polish of manners, which can only benefit those living in it.
