(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “A very exciting match was played … in which the fluorites were knocked into doughnuts.  …  [The game] was followed withcheers from both sides in turn, and the vanquished manifested the right spirit toward the victors, yielding to the “fortunes of war” without grumbling.  The Buffalonians were alike courteous in their bearing, and so all passed off very well.  The progress of the game, from first to last, was watched with intense interest by thousands, … .  The dinner took place at the Osborn House, the Flour City Club, and their Buffalo guests sitting down soon after nine o’clock, and remaining at the tables two hours or more in social and friendly chat, and feasting upon the good things dispensed by the host.  There were a number of guests at the table besides the two clubs.”)
