Date Saturday, April 29, 1876

The [Mutuals] were attired in white suits, trimmed with red, and wearing red stockings. The color of the uniform of the original Mutuals was brown—they did not wear breeches and stockings then, but pantaloons. Then they changed to a white suit with green stockings. The “wearing of the green” not proving satisfactory, they changed again to the old Mutual color, to the extent of putting on brown stockings. As they did not do up things “brown” in this suit, another change was resolved upon, and this time, in view of the fact of their entree upon the platform of square play, they donned the red stockings.
