From the preface: "Believing that a knowledge of the general principles of algebra can be perfected and permanently secured only by frequent and rigid application, the author has endeavoured, throughout the work, to blend theory and practice. For this purpose, a careful selection of problems and exercises has been made from the most approved authors." Clark College, now half of Clark Atlanta University, was founded in 1869. Clark was named after then Methodist Bishop Davis W. Clark, who was the first president of the Freedmenís Aid Society.
