NOTE, That in a Bissextile or Leap-Year, the Number of Sundays after Epiphany will be the same, as if Easter-Day had fallen One Day later than it really does. And for the same Reason, One Day must, in every Leap Year, be added to the Day of the Month given by the Table for Septuagesima Sunday: And the like must be done for the First Day of Lent (commonly called Ash-Wednesday) unless the Table gives some Day in the Month of March for it; for in that Case, the Day given by the Table is the right Day.
TABLE TO FIND EASTER,
THE YEAR 1900, TO THE YEAR 2199 INCLUSIVE.
THE Golden Numbers in the foregoing Calendar will point out the Days of the Paschal Full Moons, till the Year of our Lord 1900; at which Time, in order that the Ecclesiastical Full Moons may fall nearly on the same Days with the real Full Moons, the Golden Num
bers must be removed to different
Days of the Calendar, as is done in the annexed Table, which contains so much of the Calendar then to be used, as is necessary for find. ing the Paschal Full Moons, and the Feast of Easter, from the Year 1900, to the Year 2199 inclusive. This Table is to be made use of, in all respects, as the First Table
before inserted, for finding Easter till the Year 1899.
To find the Dominical or Sunday Letter for any given Year of our Lord, add to the Year its Fourth Part, omitting Fractions, and also the Number, which in Table I. standeth at the Top of the Column, wherein the Number of Hundreds contained in that given Year is found: Divide the Sum by 7, and if there is no Remainder, then A is the Sunday Letter; but if any Number remaineth, then the Letter, which standeth under that Number at the Top of the Table, is the Sunday 1 etter.
To find the Month and Days of the Month to which the Golden Numbers ought to be prefixed in the Calendar, in any given Year of our Lord, consisting of entire Hundred Years, and in all the intermediate Years betwixt that and the next Hundredth Year following, look in the Second Column of Table II. for the given Year consisting of entire Hundreds, and Note the Number or Cypher which stands against it in the Third Column; then, in Table III. look for the same Number in the Column under any given Golden Number, which when you have found, guide your Eye Side-ways to the Left Hand, and in the First Column you will find the Month and Day to which that Golden Number ought to be prefixed in the Calendar, during that Period of One Hundred Years.
The Letter B prefixed to cortain Hundredth Years in Table II. denotes those Years which are still to be accounted Bissextile or Leap. Years in the New Calendar; whereas all the other Hundredth Years are to be accounted only common Years
