(return match)

(NYT (2): “This match game came off … in the presence of some six thousand spectators, many of whom were ladies. The Atlantics were defeated—the first game they have lost for a period of nearly two years. The Eckford Club have added greatly to their reputation by this victory, as the Atlantics, by their many and repeated victories of both New-York and Brooklyn Clubs, have been deemed almost invincible.”)

(NYC: “one of the largest and most respectable assemblages we have ever seen on a ball ground”)
