Notes: Though the Thomas almanacs through 1795 were ascribed by Evans to Ezra Gleason, most can be attributed with varying degrees of certainty to other identifiable calculators. Those for 1786-1789 were by Samuel Stearns, and the present issue is probably also his work. The wording of the eclipse predictions, the note on p. [3] about "the Blazing Star we mentioned in our last year's almanack," the calculations for the moon's southing, and those for its rising and setting (with a few scattered variations) are identical with the same matter in Stearns' The universal calendar and North American almanack for 1790 (Bennington, Vt.) which was otherwise calculated for Vermont. The same is true for the calculations of the rising, setting and southing of the 7 stars or Pleiades, except that in Thomas's almanac these are given for each day, but in The universal calendar for only two days each month.
In the manuscript collection of the American Antiquarian Society is a letter from Daniel George to Isaiah Thomas, dated Aug. 15, 1789, replying to Thomas's request for copy for an almanac, and stating his willingness to provide it, except that he lacks the tables necessary to prepare an ephemeris of the planets' places in the zodiac which Thomas desires. He offers instead a table of the sun's place for every second day in the year. In the present almanac, both these tables appear at the head of the calendar pages. In previous issues, only the planets' ephemeris appeared; in subsequent issues through 1794, only the sun's ephemeris for alternate days is found. These issues, for 1791-1794, are attributed by Nichols to Daniel George.
The title page of the New-England farmer's almanack for 1794 (Springfield, Mass.) reads: "Calculated by the Hon. Samuel Sternes, late calculator of Thomas' much approved almanack."
Advertised in the Massachusetts spy, Worcester, Nov. 5, 1789.
