Note
  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800
  • Advertised in the Guardian of liberty, Newport, November 1, 1800
  • Identical in content and typography (except for the title, the vignette, and arrangement of pages) with the Newport almanac for 1801, also issued by Farnsworth
  • The astronomical content is apparently the work of Remington Southwick, whose almanacs for subsequent years were all published by Farnsworth after Southwick moved to Rhode Island. He was still living at his birthplace of Mendon, Mass., in 1800, and his signed almanac for 1801 was published at Dedham by H. Mann as the Columbian calendar. In the present almanac the calculations for th rising, setting, and phases of the moon are identical with those in the Columbian calendar; the astronomical notes on the calendar pages correspond with significant frequency; and the eclipse predictions are a briefer version with identical calculations. Differences appear in part of the calculations on the calendar pages because the Columbian almanac is for the meridian of Boston and the present one for that of Newport
