Event table notes

Event data
Name: Cobourg - Ottawa Telegraph Match
Place: Cobourg and Ottawa
Start date: June 1873
End date: June 1873
 
Notes:
Reported in the Toronto Globe of 13 June 1873 and the Canadian Illustrated News of 14 June 1873, so I am guessing that it took place in June (though it might have been earlier?). The Canadian Illustrated News of 14 June 1873 givs the result of all 5 games, including the win at board 1 by H.J. Ruttan (of Cobourg) over G.P. Baker (of Ottawa). The Canadian Illustrated News of 19 July 1873 (p.43) has a letter from the Secretary of the Ottawa Club claiming that the result of the first game (Ruttan-Baker) was flawed by mistransmission of a move, and that a sixth game was played (players not specified), won by Ottawa. Thus, I will not include the Ruttan-Baker game.
