Description

(New York Times (5): “The Gothamites entertained their late antagonists and a large number of members from other clubs to a most sumptuous dinner at the Elysian Fields Hotel, at which felicitous speeches were made by Judge Van Cott, President of the Gothams; Dr. Jones, President of the Excelsiors; Mr. T. Dakin, President of the Putnams; Mr. Wadsworth, and others. A large number of visitors were on the ground to witness the match.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times (6): “The Excelsiors have now beaten the three oldest and strongest clubs of New York: and have yet to be defeated by any club on this island, as the match with the Harlem Club cannot be considered anything but a tie, if it was not a success for the Exceliors. The game on Tuesday was a fine display of batting and fielding on the part of the Excelsior Club. … Mr. Bergen’s play proved him to be a valuable acquisition to the Club. … The Gotham Club did not present their strength on this occasion, several of their second nine playing in the match; and those of the first nine were not up to their mark in the game.”)
