Notes:
An obituary in the New York Times of 11 July 1884 says Morphy won 2 out of 3; an obituary in the New Orleans Times-Democrat of 13 July 1884 gives 7-0, as does C.A. Buck. All other sources I have give +7-0=1. Golombek gives date as Feb. 1859; Di Felice gives 26 Feb. - Mar. 1859; Lawson gives 26 Feb. - 3 Mar. 1859.
