    Interesting question, Revere.

    3rd - third
    13th - thirteenth (it's not formed in the same way as the others: cardinal numeral + third)
    23rd - twenty-third
    33rd - thirty-third

    13th is right. If you spell it out, it will be thirteenth.

    If it is a fraction 1/3, then you say it out as one third.
