TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS.

We have again the pleasure of appearing before you with our little annual, and of wishing you all health and happiness. They are not far to seek, if we go to work the right way. In these hard times, let us have recourse to the homely virtues that have made New England what she is; let us practise industry and economy, and we need not fear for the result.

The Tide Table is on page 45, and the P.O. Regulations are on pages 46 and 47. The other tables also as before.

With thanks to our correspondents and patrons for past favors, we would close with the words of the founder of this Almanack:

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