(PSOT (2): “As much has been said in disparagement of the Lone Star Base-Ball Club, it is no more than just and proper that they should receive honor, and acknowledgment of the propriety of their conduct, and the heartiness of their friendship upon this occasion. After the game, which the Lone Star lost in the most good-natured manner possible, they took charge of the Brooklyn Stars, and entertained them in as hospitable a manner, and with as much grace and good-will, as any other body of young men could have done; and finally escorted them to the ferry, there cheering with a vim, impossible to imitate by the younger Stars of Brooklyn. The Lone Stars are mostly stout young men, of twenty-one, or thereabouts, and play a good game, quite equal to that of many Senior clubs.”
