[Hartford vs. Mutual 10/17/1876] Still, small as the attendance was, it was more profitable than those played in Cincinnati or St. Louis, inasmuch as in the former city the three games played there yielded the Hartfords but twenty-three dollars! and the two in St. Louis but a little over forty. In fact, pecuniarily the recent Western trip of the Hartfords was a disastrous failure, fully as much so as any Western club visiting the East has had to complain of; and it would be well for the Western papers to take note of the fact, especially those which have been complaining of small receipts in the East.
