Scope and Content Alexander Cochrane, House of Commons, to George Finlay. 23 May 1843. Has given notice of motion on question of Greece in House of Commons; would welcome any further information from George Finlay.
Notes Greece was one of the last European countries to adopt the newer Gregorian calendar. For most of the nineteenth century, the Julian calendar was 12 days behind the Gregorian. British correspondents in the Finlay Collection tend to use the newer calendar. Letters with two dates 12 days apart, eg. 24 April / 6 May 1828, refer to both the Julian and Gregorian calendars.
