Date Thursday, October 7, 1880

[reporting on the League special meeting] ...the five-men reservation policy was brought up and fully discussed. Buffalo opposed its continuance in the most vigorous manner. It was decided, however, by a majority of six to one, to readopt the agreement signed in 1879 in Buffalo, permitting each club to reserve five men. It is also said that Boston, who was one of the doubtful members, was pacified by the representatives on signifying their willingness to let the Hub have Snyder, who left her to go to Washington in 1880.
