(New York Clipper: “The first contest between these clubs this season, …, it being a single game, resulting in a creditable victory for the Gothams, who by this means have added a Brooklyn ball to their case, to place alongside the one from the Mutuals, neither being easily obtained by New-York clubs.. / … / …  The ground was in very poor condition, indeed, and it did not speak well for the attention the Knickerbocker club devotes to such matters.”)
