Hilbert gives only a partial score, and a win by Napier, saying that 'At the time the game was played' the score was 3-1 for Southwick. I take this to mean the score before the given game was played, so afterwards it was 3-2 for Southwick. The match was for the first to win 5 games, but Hilbert says nothing more is known.
