A Table to Find Easter-Day

From the Present Time until the Year 2199 Inclusive.
 

Golden
Number.

Days of
the Month.

Sunday
Letters.

This Table containeth 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 standeth the day of the Pascal 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 happeneth upon a Sunday, then (according to the first rule) the next Sunday after is Easter-Day.
