(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times (2): “The Jefferson Club was formed in 1858, under the presidency of Ex-Alderman George Starr, and is comprised principally of young men hailing from the Ninth Ward.”)

(New York Clipper: “The day was quite an unpleasant one, owing to the prevalence of a cold north west wind, which not only rendered it disagreeable for the spectators, but entirely prevented the batting from being effective.  …  The game was characterized by the most gentlemanly conduct on both sides, not a word of discontent on censure being uttered on either side.”)
