Description

(return match)

(BDE: “The day was delightful, and the number of visitors was just enough to lend animation to the scene, and at the same time give all a chance to see the points of the game. The Harlem men have a high reputation among the New York clubs, and when it was known that the Atlantics were short three [Oliver, M. O’Brien, and Hamilton] of their first nine, it was generally anticipated that the game would be a close one. It was not, however; and was at no time close enough to excite any considerable interest. The Harlemites are not bad players by any means, and it is said they are capable of doing better than they did yesterday. … At a collation given by the Atlantics after the match, Mr. Dingee, of the Harlem Club, made some remarks when delivering the ball, which were responded to by Mr. Phelps in a neat and friendly manner, and all parted with the utmost good feeling.”)

(NYT: “a match … which was attended by about a thousand spectators. … At a collation given by the Atlantics after the match, Mr. Dingee made some remarks when delivering the ball, which were responded to by Mr. Phelps in a very neat and friendly manner, and all parted with the utmost good feeling.”)

(NYC: “a signal victory for the Atlantics, it being the ninth obtained out of eleven matches played, one being a drawn game, and one only being lost.. This last was a well-earned victory, as the Harlems are first class players, being good fielders and fine batsmen, and hitherto they have been very successful this season, having been the first New Yrork club to win a match from a first class Brooklyn Club, which they did in their game with the Charter Oak.”)
