(NYC: “These clubs had their first match together this season …. The game was a source of enjoyment to all, the excessive heat of the day alone being a drawback to the pleasure of the proceedings. At the close of the game the Eckfords were well taken care of by their hospitable opponents, and an hour was passed in social intercourse, which appropriately terminated the day’s play.”)
