...in a few days it is extremely probable that the announcement will be publicly made that the nine now engaged for Hartford will be transferred to Brooklyn next season. Manager Bulkley [sic] is a Brooklyn man, very wealthy, but has found out that the experiment of running a high-salaried organization in Hartford is a losing operation. This will bring baseball up in the metropolis, where it has been languishing for a long time, and the club will receive a greater share of public interest and support on account if its then being almost entirely a local nine. When the change is made Mr. Cammeyer will be associated with Mr. Bulkely in the management of the club. New York Sunday Mercury July 23, 1876
