The instructor therefore
should be as kindly as possible at this stage; remedies, which are harsh by nature, must be applied with
a gentle hand: some portions of the work must be
praised, others tolerated and others altered: the
reason for the alterations should however be given,
and in some cases the master will illumine an
obscure passage by inserting something of his own.
Occasionally again the teacher will find it useful to
dictate whole themes himself that the boy may
imitate them and for the time being love them as if
they were his own.
