Event table notes

Event data
Place: San Francisco
Start date: June 1886
End date: Aug. 1886
There were 10 games but the 4th game 'was annulled on a foul by the umpires', according to the San Francisco Chronicle of 7 Sep. 1886 (p.5), which said that the match 'has recently been concluded'. I take this to mean Aug. 1886, though it might have been early Sep. 1886. The Daily Alta California of 24 Jun. 1886 (p.1) gives the result of the first 2 games, so I am guessing that the match started in Jun. 1886.
