Q: "Accessible Archives" misdating the Pennsylvania Gazette?

Does the "Accessible Archives" misdate the Pennsylvania Gazette?

I used Accessible Archives' text search to find several articles from
1736, and printed the text.  To get the page and column (which I
didn't see in the Accessible Archives' data) I then went to the microfilm.

For all three articles, Accessible Archives has a date one week later
than I find from the microfilm.  This is not a "From/To" error.  For
example, Accessible Archives dates one article Sept. 23, but I find
the article on film in the issue "Sept. 9 to Sept. 16".

Has anyone else found misdatings in Accessible Archives?
