Date Sunday, September 20, 1868

[Mutual vs. Unions of Morrisania 9/15/1868] Among the visitors were the members of the All-England Eleven, who expressed themselves much pleased with the manner in which the game of rounders had been Americanized, and intimated a desire to have a trial of the game before they leave the country. New York Sunday Mercury September 20, 1868

[Mutual vs. Unions of Morrisania 9/15/1868] The scene was somewhat enlivened, just previous to the commencement of the game, by the appearance of the famous English eleven on the field. They watched the preliminary practice of the ball-players with evident interest, and when the game was underway, occupied reserved seats in the pagoda. New York Sunday News September 20, 1868
