[Excelsior vs. Olympic of Philadelphia 9/22/1866] [in the post-game dinner] Excellent speeches were made by the presidents of the two clubs, and appropriate remarks by Col. Fitzgerald and Col. Moore, and Mr. Hayhurst, who sat near each other at the table, the presence of the Excelsiors having a harmonious effect on all discordant elements on this occasion. The Olympics, unlike the other clubs who entertained the Excelsiors, did not forget the press–Messrs. Wells and Meeser responding to the toast tot he press.
