TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS. Again we give you greeting, with hearty thanks for the favor you have shown the “Old Farıner's Almanack.”

We offer it to old patrons and new, with the confident belief that it will receive a cordial welcome and prove a useful companion during the

The Almanack is computed in standard time, sixteen minutes behind Boston local time. As this change has been generally adopted, it seemed necessary to introduce it into the Almanack. See note below.

Acknowledgments are gratefully made to our friends and correspondents for suggestions. We close in the words of the founder of this Almanack:

NOTE ON STANDARD TIME. In the present edition, as in that of 1885, the quantities have been given in standard time as now in use. This “ Eastern Time" is the time of the 75 meridian west from Greenwich. The calculations are for the longitude and latitude of Boston, and for general purposes are sufficiently correct for most parts of New England. If, however, greater accuracy is desired, this can be obtained for places using standard time by applying a correction to the almanack times from the table below. This table contains corrections for the principal cities of the New England states; and any other place in New England can use the correction of the place in the table which is nearest in longitude to itself. For places still using the old local time, sixteen minutes should invariably be added to the almanack times. Subtract Add
