It would occupy much time, and perhaps uselessly, to go into any research on the origins of the game.  

...

We find that Cricket was played as early as, and perhaps before the sixteenth century–although many improvements and alterations have since been made in the game.  Base Ball cannot date back so far as that; but the game has, no doubt, been played in this country for at least one century.  Could we only invoke the spirit of some departed veteran in the game, how many items of interest might we be able to place before the reader.
