Excerpt from Rhetoric, or the Principles of Elocution and Rhetorical Composition

An attempt to reduce the principles of read ing to a theoretic system of any considerable extent, is,i am aware, regarded by many, as impracticable and useless. It is said, that the oral expression should in all cases be adapted to the sense, and that as the latter is, so the former should be infinitely various; and there fore not to be regulated by specific rules. It is true, the sentiments we may have occasion to read, are infinitely various; and it is impossible to define by any rules, that can be given, all the diversities, a perfect elocution may require. But the like may with equal truth be afi'irmed of music, and almost every art that can be named. The questions, to be solved by arithmetic, are infinitely various; but still there are many anal ogies among them, whereby they are rendered susceptible of rules, the utility of which it were folly to deny.
