a huge attendance

[Boston vs. Hartford 5/18/1875] So great was the interest taken in this match, that all the manufacturing firms in the city found it necessary to close their factories, and extra trains were run upon all the railroads, bringing large delegations from the surrounding cities and towns. Game was announced to begin at 3:30 P.M.; but by noon people began to gather upon the grounds, and before two o'clock all the seats except those that were reserved were occupied; and by the time game was called, fully 10,000 persons were congregated within the inclosure.
