And,
Note, That in a Bissextile or Leap-Year, the number of Sundays after Epiphany
will be the same as if Easter-Day dad fallen one day later than it really does.
for the same reason, one day must, in every Leap-Year, be added to the day of the
month given by the Table for Septuagesima Sunday, and for the first day of Lent:
unless the Table gives some day in the month of March for it: for in that case, the
day given by me Talle is the righ' day.
