Notes:
Lawson connects this series of games with a subsequent series of games at Knight odds, reported in the New Orleans Sunday Delta of 13 Mar. 1859, but Lange says they were played in the autumn of 1858, and L&oum;wenthal's report in the Era shows that they were played before the end of October 1858 (but possibly in September).
