Lilly's Almanack, which maintained its reputation for a long course of years, seems to have been one of those books which were thought necessary for all families. 1 can easily imagine that the author scarce ever went into the house of a mechanic where he did not see it lying upon the same shelf with "The Practice of Piety," and the "Whole Duty of Man."
