(Boston Herald: “The playing commenced at 2 and continued until 6 o’clock P. M., when, by consent of parties, the game was thrown up rather than try to play after dark. … 100 was intended for the game.  The Sharon Club had the first and last innings.  At 7 o’clock both Clubs sat down to a substantial supper provided by the Old Colony boys and prepared by M. T. Miller, at the Satucket Home.  After supper a present of a bat and ball was made by the Sharon to the Bridgewater Club, after which speeches and sentiments were the order of the day, and all had a good time generally.”)
