(BDE: “The Empire is one of the best of the New York clubs, but it would stand but a poor chance with several of our Brooklyn clubs. If we are ahead of the big city in nothing else, we can beat her at base ball.”)

(NYC: “The match between these clubs was renewed…, the first trial having resulted in a postponement on account of a heavy shower of rain which set in at the close of the third innings. … At the close of the game the whole party were entertained by the Empires in a very hospitable manner at Mr. Perry’s hotel, some excellent chowder arrangements having been extemporized under his able management. Dr. Jones and Mr. Winfield interchanged complimentary remarks in relation to the trophy of victory, and the day’s proceedings closed in the most friendly and cordial manner possible.”)
