Event table notes

Event data
Place: Paris
Start date: 1855
End date: June 1855
 
Notes:
Nick Pope cites Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper of 19 Jan. 1856 to say that this match took place 'at Paris, last summer'. The Liverpool Mercury of 29 June 1855 (p.11) and the Era of 1 Jul. 1855 (p.10) say it was played during O'Sullivan's 'late stay in Paris', so I guess that it finished in June 1855.
