Presumably the same as on yours:

   September 1752
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
       1  2 14 15 16
17 18 19 20 21 22 23
24 25 26 27 28 29 30

I tried it on Apple and Linux box and got the same result, including
trailing spaces.  In each case the man page indicates a derivation
from FreeBSD.

The real question is when 259 years ago today was.
