US Newspapers - Dates Question

Classification: Query
Reading the wiki on this project just now and there is the topic of dates.

Eg, publication is 24 Nov 1824 (a Wednesday) and the event occurred on Sunday (21st) with the information in brackets NOT being given in the entry.

I happen to have a calender program with which I can type in any date and it shows me that month, in that year, and I know which date should go with Sunday. But the wiki says that I am not to 'infer' this date even though I know what it is. I have been keying these date up until now, should I continue doing so or am I doing it wrong?

Cheers and many thanks for your assistance,
