(return match)

(BDE: “The result added another victory to the Atlantic’s long list of triumphs. They have played nine first class matches thus far this season and have lost but one game out of the nine. … The game was a source of gratification alike to victors and the defeated, for the latter seemed well pleased with the result apparently. The whole party was well entertained by the Atlantic’s at the close of the game.”)

(NYT: “These Clubs played … in presence of about fifteen hundred spectators … . After the presentation of the ball, and consequent speeches, a liberal collation was provided by the Atlantics for their guests, which was presided over by Mr. Caleb Sniffen with his usual attention to the wants of the Atlantic’s guests, and at which there was a good time generally. The match was conducted in the most friendly manner, the Atlantics using every exertion to keep the ground clear and suppress the disposition of the outsiders (to the manner born) to give too much vent to their lungs.”)

(NYC: “At the close of the game the usual entertainment was provided by the Atlantics at Wild’s Hotel for their welcome guests.”)
