To find the Golden Number, or Prime, add 1 to the Year of our Lord, Jand 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 1799 inclusive, add to the Year of our Lord its Fourth LOTA Part, omitting Fractions; and also the Number 1: Divide the Sum by 7; and if there is no Remainder, then A is the Sunday Letter. But if any Num. ber remaineth, 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 7,1 and proceed as in the last Rule. 1 Note, that in all Bissextile or LeapYears, the Letter found as above will be the Sunday Letter, from the inter-)! calated Day exclusive to the End of the Year.
