Fiske, Walker (Bell's Life in London, 20 July 1845, p.2), Gilberg, Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice give +11-5 for Stanley, but Fiske indicates that he doesn't know how many draws there were. Spinrad gives 11.5-5.5 from Schach Datenbank and points out that it is consistent with the 11-5 score given elsewhere if draws did not count. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi also gives 11.5-5. However, the Chess Player's Chronicle (1844, v.5, p.186) gives +11-4=1 for Stanley, as does Bell's Life in London (26 May 1844, p.2), so I have adopted this result.
