Notes:
I do not know whether this was considered a formal match. Di Felice gives dates 14-18 Mar. 1866 and location as Moscow; Feenstra Kuiper and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi also give location as Moscow. The Illustrated London News of 19 May 1866 has a win by Urusov in Moscow but the 23 June 1866 issue has a win by Hirschfeld with location given as Saint Petersburg. Le Sphinx of 1 June 1866 (p.27) gives the location as Moscow, as does Bell's Life in London (15 Dec. 1866, p.9).
