Note
  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800

  • Advertised in the Independent chronicle, Boston, Nov. 30, 1786, as "Fleet's Massachusetts register and pocket almanack." Subsequent issues for the years 1788-1793 are entitled Fleet's pocket almanack
