(New York Clipper: these clubs, “as will be observed, having adopted, the same mode of playing as is practiced by the New York Clubs.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “At the close of the game, at 5 o’clock, the Pioneers gave their opponents three hearty cheers, and it was at once arranged that the return game should be played at Westfield, on Thursday of this week.”)

This game appears on the Protoball Games Tabulation [MA table] compiled by Craig Waff. It was played by New York rules, as reported by the Clipper [October 16] and Porter's Spirit [October 16].
