The calendar pages of the Wilmington almanack (1762-1794), except for the verse and prose matter, are identical line for line with the concurrent issues of the Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack (1764-1777) calculated by John Tobler. "Thomas Fox" is a pseudonym. Author's preface to the 1762 issue states that he had "for some years, observed those almanacks published in America," and had "formerly, in Europe," learned the use of Thomas Street's tables. Tobler was a Swiss immigrant.
