THIS Table contains so much of the Calen

dar as is necessary for the determining of Easter; to find which, look for the Golden Number of the year in the first column of the Table, against which stands the day of the Paschal Full Moon: then look in the third column for the Sunday Letter, next after the day of the Full Moon; and the day of the month standing against that Sunday Letter is Easter-Day. If the Full Moon happen upon a Sunday, then (according to the first rule) the next Sunday after is Easter-Day.

To find the Golden Number or Prime, add 1 to the year of our Lord, and then divide by 19; the remainder, if any, is the Golden Number but if nothing remain, then 19 is the Golden Number.

To find the Dominical or Sunday Letter ac cording to the Calendar until the year 1899 inclusive, add to the year of our OA Lord its fourth part, omitting fractions, G divide the sum by 7, and if there be no F remainder, then A is the Sunday Letter; but if any number remain, then the Let- 4D ter standing against that number in the 5 C small annexed Table, is the Sunday Letter.


Note, That in all Bissextile or Leap-Years, the Letter found as above will be the Sunday Letter from the intercalated day exclusive, to the end of the year.
