Note, That in a Bissextile or Leap-Year, the number of Sundays after Epiphany will be the same as if Easter-Day had fallen one day later than it really does. And, for the same reason, one day must, in every LeapYear, be added to the day of the Month given by the Table for Septuagesima Sanday, and for the first day of Lent.
