Probably backdated by someone who started to write a 3 and changed it to the date of the document in mid numeral.

Got the 13 and 1862 but a month ending in S????????

Since the earliest date can be no earlier than August I guess December might be the best guess.

I think you mean October.

I'm with Jim: December 13, 1862.

I'd read that as a scrawled "10" myself ...

I'm going with Dec. No other plausible choice.

In any case, puts it at a pretty early date.
