Scope and Content Bayard Taylor to George Finlay. Athens, 21 January 1858. Returns George Finlay's papers with thanks for loan. With an old paper enclosure.
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.
