(PSOT: “The Continentals had the call before the game commenced, it being the opinion of outsiders that the chances were two to one in their favor. The Putnams won the first match of the season, making 46 to 17 by their opponents; but the latter had received such accessions since their first game, that it was considered a dead sure thing. The result shows, that some things are a little uncertain—in ball playing as in other contests. The Putnams played coolly, and carefully, and earned their victory fairly. The weather was rather windy and boisterous, but it did not seem to affect their fielding much.”)
