N. B.

The fractional parts of 2-10ths of a penny, that arise every day in the calculating of the wages, in the 3d, 5th, and 7th columns, are rejected, in the several additions in compiling these columns, when under 6-10ths of a penny, but from 6-10ths to 9-10ths of a penny, inclusive, they are reckoned as one penny.
