Vernon, Mudie, Davis, and Karcher, of the Athletic, it was conjectured, would, in some parts of the game, display some excellent playing, as they are formidable cricketers; but the points anticipated were not exhibited.  Indeed, their play did not come up to the standard.  It being their first play, however, they are most certainly excusable.”)

(Mass. Games rules)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “On Wednesday, the 14th ult., the Athletics left Philadelphia, at 6 A. M., on a brief visit to the Mauch Chunk base ball boys; they arrived at 11 ½ o’clock, and were immediately escorted to the hotel, where a fine dinner had been prepared for them.  After doing justice to the generous repast, a four horse stage, gaily decorated with flags and bunting, was in readiness to convey them to the playground, upon reaching which, the athletics were surprised to find the ground staked off for the ‘Massachusetts game.”  This was not anticipated by A’s, as all of the Philadelphia clubs, and indeed nearly all in the state of Pennsylvania, play the New York game.  The Athletics had never played the Massachusetts game, and the Mauch Chunks were not familiar with the National Association game, although most of them had seen it played. / However, the Athletics, nothing loth, played the Mauch Chunk at their own game, which was one for 45 tallies.  Notwithstanding their inexperience, the Philadelphians played an excellent game, and when the Mauch Chunk went out for their 45, the Athletics had made 43.  During the game, M. C’s made 30 tallies prior to the Athletics securing one; but as soon as the latter understood a little respecting it, they made rapid progress, and if the game had been a full one of 100 tallies, the victory would probably have been with the Athletics. “)

(New York Clipper: “… the two principal clubs, Olympic and Athletic, contended for the usual trophy.  The day was glorious for the sport, and the large company of ladies and gentlemen that graced the occasion with their presence, proved conclusively that the love for active, exhilarating sport is not on the wane in Philadelphia.  The manifest feeling among the spectators in favor of the Athletic nine was too marked for the good of future play, and we take this opportunity to say, that Base Ball players above all others, should not forget how to conduct themselves at a match.  …  We are informed that the Olympic have never lost a match!—they are the champion club, and we hope to be able at no distant day to witness a match between them and some leading club of New York or Boston.”)
