a| Though Evans attributes this series of almanacs through 1795 to Ezra Gleason, the present one, like that for 1784, is the work of Benjamin West. The eclipse predictions (p. ), the ephemeris (p. ), the astronomical notes on the calendar pages, and the columns on these pages giving calculations for the moon's place and its rising and setting, are all either identical or practically so with those in West's The North-American calendar for 1785 (Providence). The remainder of the calendar page calculations vary slightly for the most part, reflecting the difference in meridian between Providence and Boston.
a| In a letter to Isaiah Thomas, dated Aug. 13, 1784, in the manuscript collection of the American Antiquarian Society, West states that he has completed and sent to Thomas the manuscript of the 1785 almanac, and discusses the subject of remuneration.
a| The preface to the almanac, signed "Philomathes," is the work of the publisher.
