The way to engage a first-class club for next season is not to sit down, fold your hands and wait for the players to come to you and beg to be engaged. The managers who mean “business” next year are now buzzing around from city to city among the players, gobbling up players like a fly-trap swallows flies. Philadelphia Sunday Mercury July 9, 1876

Murnan refuses to sign a contract for next year until the end of this season. He knows that he is making a record this season that will add dollars to his salary every game he plays. Philadelphia Sunday Mercury July 9, 1876
