To find the Dominical or Sunday Letter for any given Year of our Lord, add to the Year, its fourth Part, omitting Fractions, and also the Number, which, in Table I. standeth at the Top of the Column wherein the Number of Hundreds contained in that given Year is found: Divide the Sum by 7, and if there be no Remainder, then A is the Sunday Letter; but if any Number remain, then the Letter which standeth under that Number at the Top of the Table, is the Sunday Letter.
O find the Month and Days of the Month to which the Golden Numbers ought to be prefixed in the Calendar in any given Year of our Lord, consisting of entire Hundred Years, and in all the intermediate Years betwixt that and the next Hundredth Year following, look in the second Column of Table II. for the #. Year, consisting of entire Hundreds; and note the Number or Cypher which stands against it in the third Column; then in Table IHI. look for the same Number in the Column under any given Golden Number, which when you have found, guide your Eye sideways to the Left"|Hand, and in the first Column you will find the Month and Day to which that Golden Number ought to be prefixed in the Calendar, during that Period of one Hundred Years. The Letter B prefixed to certain Hundreth Years in Table II. denotes those Years which are still to be accounted Bissextile or
23 Leap Years in the New Calendar;
whereas all the other Hundredth Years are to be accounted only common Years.

God; yet ought we chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together, to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul.

TI A General Confession to be said by the whole Congregation after the Minister, allkneeling.
LMPGHTY and most merciful Father; We have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy jaws.
