Speece was a Presbyterian minister of considerable reputation in the Valley of Virginia; this title was a collection of essays he intended for the "improvement" of the youth; they first appeared in serial form in the Staunton weekly, the Republican Farmer, published by Isaac Collet from July 1813 to July 1816; the two men then collaborated on publishing a collected edition of those newspaper essays earlier in this year (1818.107); in this new edition, Speece added material to the prior offerings, particularly annotating the Republican Farmer essays.
