(deciding game of play in 1856)

(PSOT (2): The clubs met “to settle an old question as to their superiority in a rubber game, which had been outstanding for over a year..…After the termination of the game, the Newarkers hospitably entertained their guests with a collation, and the very best of feeling characterized the proceedings. It was only by a determined effort that the Baltic folks could get away from Newark, and their hosts insisted upon escorting them to the Jersey City Ferry.”)
