Notes:
Attributed to Benjamin West in Nichols, C.L. "Notes on the almanacs of Massachusetts." Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 22 (1912): 34-35; and in the Dictionary of American biography. However, the eclipse notes, calculations, and notes on the calendar pages do not resemble those in West's North-American calendar for 1783 (Providence), whereas they contain frequent correspondences or similarities with Nathan Daboll's The New-England almanack and gentleman's and lady's diary for the same year, published at New London under the pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter, such as to suggest a common authorship.
Two states noted. One has a four-line advertisement for booksellers and shopkeepers in Boston and Salem on p. [24]; the other dfoes not.
Advertised in the Independent ledger, Boston, Oct. 28, 1782.
