(Porter’s Spirit of the Times (2): “If the Eckfords keep the nine that played on Wednesday, there is a bright prospect for them before the season closes. …/ This, although, a second nine match, drew a very large crowd to witness it, and it was well worthy of notice, as it was played with spirit throughout. There was one thing we were sorry to notice on the part of the Putnams, and that was a want of the friendly feeling which exists between the opposing clubs. It is customary, when the game is finished, for the Club on whose grounds it has been played, to cheer the other, but in this instance no such thing was done. Just as soon as the ninth innings was finished, the Puts picked up their bats and left, without saying a word. Was it on account of their very bad defeat?”)
