Di Felice gives dates spanning over 9 months? The start date is given in the Westminster Papers (1 July 1878, p.44) and the Illustrated London News (15 June 1878, p.567). Di Felice calls it the 6th Canadian Championship, but this does not include the unfinished first edition in 1872. Di Felice has 'Saunders, Alexander' at this event. The Westminster Papers have 'Sanders'.
