(BDE: “The Atlantics played very poorly, their entire play being far behind their usual standard. … The Atlantics were without the able services of P. O’Brien, who is a host in himself. After the game the two Clubs and the invited guests partook of a dinner, which had been arranged at Strong’s Hotel by the Liberty Club. A large company, numbering some one hundred and fifty persons, were at the table, among them representatives from several of the New Jersey, New York and Brooklyn Clubs. The Atlantics left for home on the 8 o’clock train well satisfied with the generous hospitality of their Jersey friends.”)
