The Calendar Act 1752 brought about further changes.Ordinal numbers are represented by superscript letters following them, just as today. Top of page Money was calculated in pounds, shillings and pence. The pound was represented either by ‘li’, or £: transcribe both with a £ sign before the amount given. It was worth two-thirds of a pound, that is 13s 4d.This symbol is actually an elaborate ‘L’, from the Latin ‘libra’, meaning pound. Half a mark (one-third of a pound) was therefore 6s 8d.So in 1752 these days had to be cut out of the year to make the adjustment.
Therefore Wednesday 2 September 1752 was followed immediately by Thursday 14 September.
