Reference No. FIN/GF/A/21/024
Dates 7 December 1841
Scope and Content George Finlay elected as member of the Provincial Council of Attica by the Demarch of Athens (7 December 1841).
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.
