According to Hilbert the match began between the 6th and 10th of Mar. 1861, was interrupted by Leonard's trip to Philadelphia, and ended prematurely in April after five games. The fourth game was played on 8 Apr. 1861, so it ended soon after that. The Georgia Weekly Telegraph of 15 Feb. 1867 has +5-0=1 for Leonard.
