Scope and Content Extract from Mr. Hill's letter to J. Sculudi. 10/22 August 1854. Dissatisfaction with present Greek admininistration; unfortunate attitude of Turkey.
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.
