(PSOT: “Though the Manhattans were badly beaten, they will not stay so—they are a new club, and have got the spirit and strength to yet make good players. The Metropolitans play well, and, of late, are growing very careful—a virtue much needed in ball playing.…After the game, the Metropolitans were escorted over to the ‘Monumont House,’ where friend Swarts and his amiable lady had prepared an excellent supper. All parties enjoyed the occasion, and parted ‘when the sma’ wee hours o’mornin’ mad’ them go.’ “)
