Note
  • The calculations and wording of the eclipse predictions (p. 3 and 12), the accompanying illustration, and the calculations on the calendar pages, are identical with those in Bickerstaff's Boston almanack for 1768 (Boston: Mein & Fleeming) except that for some months those in the two "High water" columns are transposed. Bickerstaff's was apparently calculated by Benjamin West. Cf. Nichols, C.F. "Notes on the almanacs of Massachusetts," Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 22 (1912): 34-35; and the Dictionary of American biography
