Sunday

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 happens upon a Sunday, tlien (according to the First Rule) the next Sunday after is EasterFDay.

8 G 9 A 10 B

To find the Dominical or Sunday Letter, according to the Calendar, until the Year 1799 inclusive, add to the Year of our Lord its Fourth 101A Part, omitting Fractions; and G also the Number 1: Divide the 2 F Sum by 7; and if there is no 3 E Remainder, then A is the Sun-4 D 15 G day Letter: But if any Num-5 C 16 Aber remaineth, then the Letter 6 B 17 B standing against that Number

18 C in the small annexed Table, is the
19 D Sunday Letter,

20 E For the next Century, that is, from
21 F the Year 1800 till the Year 1899 inclu-
22 Gsive, add to the current Year only its
23 A Fourth Part, and then divide by 7,
24 B and proceed as in the last Rule.
25 C

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

11 C 12 D

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.
