[The Charter Oaks of Hartford] sent word to the Excelsiors soliciting with them, and they were accommodated with one on Friday; four of the new members of the Excelsior Club taking part in the game, although their turn was not up. This was explained to the Charter Oaks before the game was accepted, and as the object of the latter was simply to give them some practice, they were rather glad than otherwise to have a strong nine against them. ... As the game did not count, no trophy being received or given, we do not give the score.
