The Lewiston (ME) Evening Journal, Oct. 18, 1867, the Providence (RI) Evening Press, Oct. 22, 1867, the Buffalo (NY) Commercial Advertiser, Oct. 22, 1867, the Boston (MA) Semi-Weekly Advertiser, Oct. 23, 1867; the Chicago (IL) Post, Oct. 24, 1867, the Washington (DC) Daily Morning Chronicle, Oct. 25, 1867, the Elmira (NY) Daily Advertiser, Oct. 25, 1867, the Wheeling (WV) Daily Intelligencer, Oct. 26, 1867, the Baltimore Sun, Oct. 26, 1867, the Harrisburg (PA) Telegraph, Oct. 26, 1867, the Troy (NY) Daily Times, Oct. 28, 1867, the Charleston (SC) Daily News, Oct. 30, 1867, the Hackettstown (NJ) Gazette, Nov. 7, 1867, the Ottawa (IL) Free Trader, Nov. 9, 1867, the San Antonio [TX] Express, Nov. 8, 1867, the Wheeling (WV) Daily Register, Nov. 13, 1867, the Davenport (IA) Daily Gazette, Nov. 13, 1867, the Minneapolis (MN) Daily Tribune, Nov. 15, 1867, and the Sunbury (PA) Gazette, Nov. 16, 1867, report: "A Maine base ball club is debating whether to accept a challenge that has been sent from a club in Hamburg, Germany." The Oct. 18 report specified that the recipient club was the Gorham, ME, Base Ball Club, and that the challenge was received on Oct. 16.

This newspaper report lacks detail. It may be an erroneous report--or perhaps Hamburg South Carolina (not Germany) is meant?
