TO PATRONS AND CORRESPONDENTS.
Another year is gone, with its opportunities. Whether we have used or neglected them, they are gone. But if the past is no longer ours, we have still the present, and the golden future. The world is new again with another year, which is just beginning. May our readers make good use of this year! We have to thank our patrons for their continued favor, and hope we may merit it in some measure. The tides are given, as heretofore, on the quarter hour nearest the actual time. A distinction in the tides is given, in the right hand calendar pages, into low and very low, high and very high. A tide table for different ports is given on page 47. Our agricultural articles are especially recommended to our farming friends. The schedule of Stamp Duties, pp. 42 and 43, contains the corrections of the law of 1870. Our readers will please bear in mind that the Almanac goes to press in September, and that alterations in the various tables may occur after that time.
Copies of this Almanac of the years 1793, '94, '95, '96, '97, '98, 1805, '6, 7, ’19, 20, '21, are wanted. Address the publishers.
We close in the words of the founder of this Almanac,-"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..
