The Jan. 1887 issue of British Chess Magazine (p.31) says that Golmayo has now played 9 matches of 5 games each against Vazquez, winning 7 of the matches and losing 2. The Oct. and Dec. 1886 issues (p.395 and 471 respectively) account for the first 7 of these matches, Golmayo having won 5 and lost 2. So the Jan. 1887 issue must be taken to indicate that there were 2 more matches of 5 games each, both won by Golmayo. No scores are given, however, and it is not clear whether these matches relate to the +7-0=0 result given by Feenstra Kuiper, Di Felice and Golombek.
