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 for the Sunday Letter, next after the day of the Full Moon; and the day of the month standing against that Sunday Letter is EasterDay. If the Full Moon happen upon a Sunday, then (according to the first rule) the next Sunday after is EasterDay.
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.
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 part, omitting fractions, 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 standing against that number in the small annexed Table is the Sunday Letter.

TO make use of the preceding Table, find the Sunday Letter for the Year in the uppermost line, and the Golden No. or Prime, in the column of Golden Nos., and against the Prime, in the same line, under the Sunday Letter, you have the day of the Month on which Easter falleth that Year. But
Note, That the name of the Month is set on the Left hand, or just with the figure, and followeth not as in other Tables, by descent, but collaterally.

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.
