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 Ta. ble, 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 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 Pemainder, 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 1799 inclusive, add to the Year of

0 А our Lord its Fourth Part,

1 G omitting Fractions; and

2 F also the Number 1: Divide

8 the Sum by 7; and if there

4 D is no Remainder, then A is the Sunday Letter: But

5 с if any Number remaineth,

6 B 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 current Year only its Fourth Part, and then divide by 7, and proceed as in the last Rule.

Note, that in all Bissextile Leap-Years, the Letter found as above will be the Sunday Letter, from the intercalated Day exclusive to the End of the Year.
