(postponed to 25 Jun 1860 due to rain)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “The rain of Tuesday and Wednesday, 19th and 20th insts., prevented two excellent matches from coming off, and renders the record of the week rather slim. On Tuesday the Eagles and Harlem were to play at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken; and on Wednesday, the Eckford, of Greenpoint, and the Continental, of Wheat Hill, were to play upon the Manor House grounds, at Greenpoint. The matches are only postponed for a few days, and will come off soon.”)
