(return match)

(PSOT: “The match was hurriedly got up, and consequently both sides were deficient in presenting their full strength. Neither club played with their usual skill and ability, although the play was far from being bad. Several of the second nines of both clubs played on this occasion, and acquitted themselves very creditably indeed. … The game throughout was marked by the most courteous and gentlemanly conduct, and in this respect was enjoyed by all. … the day’s exercises were concluded with an adjournment to the rooms of the Putnam Club, where a handsome collation was provided for the entertainment of their guests. Speeches and toasts were the order of the evening, and an hour or two was most agreeably enjoyed by all.”)
