COMPUTATION counting, calculation. It is a reckoning or ascertaining the
number of any thing.

2. It is sometimes used in the common law for the true reckoning or
account of time. Time is computed in two ways; first, naturally, counting
years, days and hours; and secondly, civilly, that is, that when the last
part of the time has once commenced, it is considered as accomplished.

3. It is a general rule that when an act is to be done within a certain
time, one day is to be taken inclusively, and one exclusively. Vide Lofft,
