Dates 23 June 1866 - 24 August 1866
Scope and Content Letter from the President of the Greek Archaeological Soc. (Mr. Nomikos) to George Finlay (15 July 1851).
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.
