PART FIRST.




FIRST CLASS.





The first class only draw right lines, triangles and perpendiculars. The corrections are made with a rule, and dividers.

The four first figures drawn above, relate particularly to the first eight propositions. To ascertain if the line be straight, let the monitor draw a line through it or near it with a rule. To ascertain if a line be cut into equal parts, measure the parts with the dividers, if the eye be not sufficiently practised to detect the errors without their assistance.

PROPOSITIONS.

1. Draw a right line (that is, a straight line.) fig.1.

2. Draw a right line and divide it in the centre. fig.2.

3. Draw a right line and cut it into quarters. fig.3.
