(return game)

(New York Clipper: “The return game … took place … in the presence of fully 4000 persons, it being the largest assemblage seen at a match this season.  The result was a victory for the Atlantics, but it was not obtained as easily as was the other, although the Newark party was weaker than they were before.  The game was well contested throughout, the Atlantics displaying some of their old style of batting.”)
