* It will be found desirable to omit these chapters when the book is used
for the instruction of very young children, until they have acquired some
familiarity with the first portion of the history. They will present compara-
tively little difficulty, when they are introduced in the course of the second
reading, after the first fourteen chapters have been carefully read or taught.
The note at the end of chapter vi. is intended for those children only who are
old enough to read the Bible, and therefore require to be taught the meaning
of its difficult but important texts, such as Genesis iii. 14, 15.
