Date Sunday, January 23, 1876

In 1873 he [Fergus Malone] caught for the Philadelphias, and after filling the same position the following season with the Chicagos, he rejoined the Philadelphias; the increasing duties incidental to his ball court, however, preventing him from paying the proper attention to base ball playing, and he resigned before the close of the season. He has always hitherto been tied down by business, but as he now intends disposing of his ball court and devoting himself exclusively to base ball, he has placed himself on an equal footing with other catchers, and being now in the best of condition, he will be found a valuable acquisition to any professional nine, having few equals as a hard-working and effective catcher, and being like all left-handed men, a very hard hitter.
