Date Thursday, July 11, 1867

[Mutuals vs. Eckfords 7/3/1867] The score now [after nine innings] stood 20 to 20, and as there was neither rain, darkness, or the interference of a crowd to prevent a continuance of the game, as the rules required, there was no right to call it a drawn game, which the two captains agreed to consider it. But a drawn game it was by the mutual consent of the captains, and the tacit approval of their action by the umpire, whose duty it was to have decided it in favor of the party willing to continue the game.
