To Correspondents

[Thomas Byerley]


Editorial Reply


Time, Astronomy

    'A correspondent, who was born on the 1st of April, 1771, which was then Easter Monday, wishes to know when the festival will fall on the same day again. In the last century they fell together every eleven years, that is to say, in 1771, 1782, and 1793; since which time he complains he has not had a right birth-day'.
