EASTER DAY is the First Sunday after the Full Moon, which in some cases happens upon, in others next after, the Twentieth Day of March, according to the time it would occur in Judea (a); and if the Full Moon happens upon a Sunday, Easter Day is the Sunday after.

Trinity Sunday

Eight Weeks

Advent Sunday is the next Sunday after the 26th of November.

(a) For instance, if the Full Moon happens here so early in the Day of the 20th of March, that it must have happened at Jerusalem before the 19th expired, Easter Day is not until the Sunday after the following Moon.

A TABLE, pointing out the GOLDEN NUMBER, the SUNDAY LETTER, and EASTER DAY, from 1813 to 1861.

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 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 o A fourth part, omitting fractions: divide the sum by 7; and if I G there be no remainder, then A is the Sunday-Letter: But 3 if any number remaineth, then the Letter standing against 4 that number in the small annexed Table, is the Sunday- 5C

Letter.

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.
