Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manhattan Club Championship
Place: New York
Start date: Apr. 1884
End date: July 1884
 
Notes:
Gaige and Di Felice call this the 6th Manhattan Club Championship, but Hillyer quotes an article by W.F. Morse in the American Chess Magazine of Feb. 1898, saying that the championship tournament was just established in 1884, and the British Chess Magazine mentions the 6th Manhattan Club Handicap Tournament but does not say that the Championship tournament was the 6th. The British Chess Magazine also gives a game from the event played on Apr. 30, so I suppose that it started in April, though it could have been earlier, and only gives the final score in the Aug.-Sept. issue, so I suppose that it ended in July (?).
