(New York Clipper: “a victory for the ‘champions,’ who played quite up to their usual mark.  The Exercise nine were not in condition for play, inasmuch as they had been unable to practice on their grounds, owing to the recent raising of the grade of the streets on 5th ave.  In addition to this, two of their players were in a measure disabled.”)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: The game “resulted in adding another victory to the overflowing roll of the Champions’ triumphs.”)
