This Institution, which has been in successful operation since 182S. is designed for
the Promotion of Health, the Cure op Stammering and Defective Articulation, for
Instruction in Elocution and Phonetics, and for the Acquisition of Ancient and
Modern Languages.
In this Institution, Elocution is treated as a science, as well as an art. The various
movements of the voice, both in speech and song, are illustrated by original diagrams
and by oral instruction. The exercises give the pupil complete command of the muscles
of articulation, extend tb? compass of the voice, and render it smooth, powerful,
and melodious. They not only call forth all the energies of the vocal organs, correct
stammering, lisping, and other impediments of speech, hut they invigorate the lungs,
and, consequently, fortify them against the invasion of disease. The vocal exercises
are not unfrequently accompanied by gesticulation, or the use of the dumb-bells.
Hence, to a certain extent, general gymnastics are associated with those of the voice;
and awkwardness of manner and posture is removed by the substitution of rhetorical
grace. In other words, all the voluntary muscles of the trunk and limbs are so
trained as to move in the order required by the will, synchronously and harmoniously
with those of the voice.
