Description

(return match)

(NYC: “The members of these two clubs took advantage of the comparative improvement in the weather … and played their return match which had been so long and anxiously waited for by the whole fraternity. As the appointed time drew near for the commencement of the sport, the Hoboken ferry-boats added largely to their number of passengers, [LINES MISSING?]. Altogether, it was a day to be remembered, and will no doubt prove one of those occasions which will be looked back upon with the greatest pleasure, in after years, by those who took part therein.”)
