Date Wednesday, July 6, 1870

The National Base Ball Club, of Washington, was advertised to play the Pastime on the morning of the Fourth, but as is usual with them, failed to keep their engagement, much to the disappointment of the crowd assembled on the ground. The Pastimes gave them a game in Washington some few weeks ago, with the understanding that they would return the favor on the 4th. They, however, demanded fifty dollars on Saturday night before they would leave the city. This unreasonable request not being yielded to by the Pastimes, they did not come up from Washington, and the umpire, Mr. Lennon, gave the game to the Pastimes. A match afterward was gotten up between the Maryland and the Pastimes... Baltimore American July 6, 1870.
