On page 2, Ogilvie offers a "Prefatory Intimation," stating that "The following observations are published in order to enable the public to form some judgment of the course of instruction which the author has introduced into the Stevensburg Academy. The present publication is prefatory to a series of Essays, in which the author proposes to explain the principles he endeavours to inculcate, as they respect Philosophy, Civics, Political Economy, Government and Theology." At this time, Ogilvie employed Thomas Ritchie (xxx) as a teacher in his academy.
