Date Sunday, August 8, 1869

The Mutual nine, of New York, since their reorganization, are bound by penalties to appear on the ground on match days in uniform, and at least half an hour before the time appointed for calling the game. Each man is assured his position through the entire season, without fear of change, except for personal misconduct, and each man is held to a responsibility only to the Captain (Charles Mills), the Captain only to Wildey, and he to the Club; so outside influence will no longer affect the nine. Each is paid a salary of $900 yearly, and occupies his position as a regular professional ball player.
