THIS Table contains so much of the Calendar
as is necessary for the determining of Easter; to find which, look for the Golden Number of the Year in the Firet Column of the Table, against which stands the Day of the Paschal Fall 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 happens upon a Sunday, then (according to the First Rule) the next Sunday after is Easter-Day.
To find the Golden Number, or Prime, add one to the Year of our Lord, and then divide by 19; the Remainder, if any, is the Golden Num ber; but if nothing remaineth, then 19 is the Golden Number.
To find the Dominical or Sunday Letter, ac cording to the Calendar, until the Year OA 1799 inclusive, add to the Year of our G Lord its Fourth Part, omitting Fractions; F and also the Number 1: Divide the Sum3E by 7; and if there is no Remainder, then 4 D A is the Sunday Letter: But if any Num-C ber remaineth, then the Letter standing against that Number in the small annexed Table, is the Sunday Letter.
For the next Century, that is, from the Year 1800 till the Year 1899 inclusive, add to the cur rent Year only its Fourth Part, and then divide by 7, and proceed as in the last Rule.
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.

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 Septuagesime 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.
