Michael, on my 32 inch screen I read " ult. ".

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~njmorris/acronyms.htm shows 

Abbreviation "Ult." = The abbreviation “ult.” stands for the Latin “ultimo,” or last—a date last month, during the preceding month. The abbreviation “ult” is often found in pre-1900 correspondence and in other early sources.

# 2178 shows February. :)
