Spinrad and Sericano's page on Bonetti, both give 1857 as the date of the first Discart-Bonetti match (with result +11-9=1 for Bonetti). However, Zavatarelli, in his book on Dubois (pp.101-102) gives a letter written by Discart on 26 Dec. 1855 describing this result, and Zavateralli, in his book on Discart gives dates Nov.-Dec. 1855.
