This is the shorter version of The Clergyman's almanack for 1811 (Shaw & Shoemaker 19786). The advertisement for the latter, in the Independent chronicle, Boston, for Aug. 23, 1810, states "To meet the wishes of all classes, the Clergyman's almanack is published in two sizes. The double size 9 dolls. per gross; the single size 4:50 per gross."
The 1811 issue is evidently the first; no earlier one is known. The "editor's address to his patrons," p. [2], states: With the view more extensively to meet the wishes of the public, he now offers them his work in a larger and smaller edition." The address is dated 1810.
Parentheses substituted for square brackets in imprint transcription.
Two states noted. In one, the last word on p. [24] is 'Mother.' In another, the word 'Finis' appears at the foot of p. [24].
