This game is known only via a side-reference in an August 1870 Chicago newspaper: 

"There are two Continental Clubs in Chicago, and much confusion and annoyance has resulted in consequence.  The Secretary of one of the clubs makes the following request: 'The Continentals which beat the O.K.s would like to have the Secretary of the Continentals who who were beaten by the Rosettes send his address to L. Kuhrman (?) 185 North Clark Street.  Our object is to settle who shall call themselves the Continentals, both clubs, probably, being unaware of the fact that there exist two clubs in this city bearing the same name.'"

The losing club was thus reported as one of the two clubs sporting the name of Continental Club.




Chicago Tribune, August 26, 1870.
