Event table notes

Event data
Place: London, England
Start date: Sep. 1858
End date: Nov. 1858
 
Notes:
Spinrad gives date as 1856, but the reports in the contemporary sources date it to Sep. - Nov. 1858. Löwenthal says in the Era (3 Oct. 1858, p.5; 24 Oct. 1858, p.5) and Falkbeer says in the Sunday Times (10 Oct. 1858, supplement, p.4) that Kenny received a 3 game start from Campbell, so the official score was +9-8=5 but in games played it was +9-5=5.
