TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS. The Old Farmer's Almanack again comes to you, with much useful and entertaining matter. Grateful for past favors we greet our numerous patrons with a hearty wish that the New Year may be one of prosperity and happiness to all.

The Almanack is computed in Standard Time, sixteen minutes behind Boston local time. See note below.

We close in the words of the founder of this Almanack:

It is by our works and not by vur words we would be judged: these we hope will sustain us in the humble though proud station have so long held.

NOTE ON STANDARD TIME. In the present edition, as in that of 1886, the qnantities have been given in standart time as now in use. This “Eastern Time” is the time of the 75th meridian west from eenwich. The calculations are fo 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 alnianack times. Subtract Add
