THIS Table contains so much of the Calen

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.
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 2 remainder, then A is the Sunday Let-3E ter; but if any number remain, then the 4D Letter standing against that number in 5C the small annexed Table, is the Sun-16B day Letter.
