(Troy Daily Whig (3): “The weather was quite unfavorable, still quite a large number of spectators were present who appeared to enjoy the game vastly.  The fielding of the Victory was far below the average.  The Priams’ were doubtless somewhat discouraged when they saw their opponents score up nineteen runs on even innings [end of 1st inning]; still they battled manfully, and at the end did not exhibit other than the most generous and kindly feelings, in spite of the extreme odds against them.  It was a great source of regret that a high wind was prevailing during the whole course of the game.  Had it been otherwise, we hazard nothing when we say that the fielding would have been very much better on both sides.  At the conclusion of the game, the ball was presented by Robt. Green, Esq., Capt. Of the Priams, with a very fine speech, which was replied to by W. H. Hegeman, Esq., Capt. Of the Victory’s, in quite a handsome manner.  Cheers were then given for each other, when the Clubs separated and wended their ways homeward.”)
