    Bruce,
    Thank you for your explanation.
    
    > Here are some things you probably already know but I'll mention anyway:
    
    No, I did not, because I have never seen
    an old almanac. I only have a modern one.
    
    Frank refers to a 1804 almanac "available" on the Mystic
    Seaport page, but I am still unable to figure out how can
    one actually use these Mystic Seaport web "publications".
    (Maybe because I am not too good with computers. George once
    said, however, that he also cannot use them).
    The problems are thst
    a) one cannot print/download the whole document, only one
    page at a time, and
    b) this one page comes with "frames" which do not contain any useful
    information, the page (of the almanac itself) comes out so
    small in print that I can hardly read it.
    
    What is the point of such "publication" escapes me.

    Yes, I would like to have a copy of a part of an old almanac,
    containing enough pages to work with.
    
    Alex.
