(NYC: “The weather was very unpleasant. Notwithstanding the rain, the Pioneers were on hand at the appointed hour. … it was very difficult to decide which of the two were the best players, for the ground being so wet and slippery that it caused several hands to be put out by slipping down. At the conclusion of the game the Columbias gave three cheers for the Pioneers, which was heartily returned. The clubs then repaired to a hotel, where a supper had been provided by the Columbias, in fine style. After the inner man had been taken care of several toasts and congratulations were passed by members of several Clubs that were represented.”)

Alternate score of 26-13 printed in the Newark Daily Advertiser, 9/6/1855. (rc)
