The cal(1) man page states:
The Gregorian Reformation is assumed to have occurred in 1752 on the 3rd
of September. By this time, most countries had recognized the reforma-
tion (although a few did not recognize it until the early 1900's.) Ten
days following that date were eliminated by the reformation, so the cal-
endar for that month is a bit unusual.
However, 11 days are missing from September (the 3rd - 13th).
cal 9 1752
Adjust your clocks by one day. :) Seriously, determine which is
correct and adjust the other.
