Scope and Content George Grote to George Finlay. East Burnham, Maidenhead, 17 September 1854. Reports that Editor of Edinburgh Review does not think George Finlay's article is written in attractive style but materials are authentic. He will accept it if George Finlay does not insist on immediate publication.
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.
