The banquet at the Mercantile Club, directly after the parade, proved a pleasant ending of the evening's programme. There were plates for 160 persons, and seats were taken at about 11 o'clock, with Colonel Fitzgerald presiding. He rapped to order at 12 o'clock, and in his speech presented the Athletic Club with the championship banner carried in the parade. Each of the Athletic playes was also presented with a gold badge, commemorative of the championship. Harry Stovey received a fine gold watch from Manager Charles Mason. There were other speeches, and the party borke up at about 1 o'clock in the morning. Philadelphia Record October 2, 1883 [from a long article about the reception parade and festivities]
