Notes

The eclipse notes and other astronomical data are identical with those in Weatherwise's town and country almanack for 1787 (Boston: J. Norman). The calendar page calculations are also identical except for the months of January and February. From the page for July to the end of the almanac, the two are printed from the same type. The two almanacs appear to be based on that of Nathaniel Low for this year, because of the large degree of identity between the calculations and astronomical notes on their calendar pages and his.
