(NYT: The Excelsiors “played throughout in that splendid manner by which their Club is justly celebrated. … A large assemblage was upon the grounds.”)

(NYC: “the first contest between the Baltic and Excelsior clubs. The weather was all that could have been desired, and there was quite alarge number of spectators on the ground, and a more orderly concourse we have never seen on a ball ground.”)
