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.
