A TABLE to find EASTER-DA X from the present Time till the Year 1899 inclusive, according to the foregoing Calendar.
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 first column of the Table, against which stands the day of the Paschal Full Moon; then look in the.third column foe 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 1 to the year of our Lord, and then divide by 19; the remainder, if any, is the Golden Number; but if nothing remaineth, then 19 is the Golden Number.
To find the Dominical or Sunday-Letter, according to the Calendar, until the year 1899 inclusive, add to the year of our Lord its fourth pan, omitting fractions: divide the sum by 7; and if there be no remainder, then A ii the Sunday-Letter: But if any number remaineth, then the Letter standing against that number in the small annexed Table, is the SundayLetter.
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.
