HIS Table contains so much of the Calen THIS 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.

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 for the first day of Lent: 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.

HE Golden Numbers in 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 Numbers 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 finding 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. FOR FINDING THE DOMINICAL OR SUNDAY LETTER, AND THE PLACES OF THE GOLDEN NUMBERS IN THE CALENDAR. To find the Dominical or Sunday Letter for any given year of our Lord, add to the year its 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 be no remainder, then A is the Sunday Letter; but if any number remain, then the Letter which standeth under that number at the top of the Table, is the Sunday Letter. 1 B B B B B B B B B TABLE II. 23 Years of our Lord. 1600 1700 1800 1900 0 1 1 B B 2000 2100 2200 2300 4 2400 3 B 2500 2600 2700 2800 2900 3000 3100 3200 3300 3400 3500 9 3600 8 B 3700 9 3800 10 3900 10 10 4000 4100 11 4200 12 4300 12 4400 12 B 4500 13 4600 13 4700 14 4800 14 4900 14 5000 15 5100 16 B 6 6 7 7 B 7 8 B B 23 Years of our 5200 15 5300 16 5400 17 5500 17 5600 17 5700 18 5800 18 5900 19 6000 19 6100 19 6200 20 6300 21 6400 20 6500 21 6600 22 6700 23 6800 22 6900 23 7000 24 7100 24 7200 24 7300 25 7400 25 7500 26 7600 26 7700 26 7800 27 7900 8000 &c. 28 27 28 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 cipher 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 sideways to the left hand, and in the first column you will find the month and the 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 certain hundreth 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. |
