(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times (1): “The Enterprise boys chafe a little from the defeat which they received from the Eckfords on the 5th inst., and they appear determined to regain any laurels which they may have lost on that occasion, although we do not deem they lost an iota of their fairly-won reputation in sustaining a reverse from such an organization as the Eckfords are admitted to possess.”)

(New York Clipper: “There were a large number of spectators on the ground, in spite of the ominous appearance of the weather, which foreboded a heavy rain; none fell, however, the afternoon turning out to be one very favorable for play.”)
