NOTES
       An unusual calendar is printed for September 1752. That is the month 11
       days  were skipped to make up for lack of leap year adjustments. To see
       this calendar, type:

       cal 9 1752

       The command cal 83 refers to the year 83, not 1983.

       The year is always considered to start in January.
