Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice give +7-5=4 for Showalter in an 1895 match and +7-4=3 for Showalter in an 1896 match. There was only one match, with result +7-4=3 but played in 1895. Golombek and Hooper and Whyld give this result, as does Russell quoting a letter by Shipley. Hilbert gives the exact dates 21 Oct.-27 Dec. 1895.
