Event table notes

Event data
Name: Buffalo Club - Rochester Club Telegraphic Match
Place: Buffalo and Rochester, New York
Start date: 5 Jan. 1901
End date: 5 Jan. 1901
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was an 8-a-side team match. I assume the locations were Buffalo and Rochester, since the tournament was between players of those two cities and Hilbert says it was played by telegraph 'obviating the need for either team to travel the sixty-some miles between cities', but in the header for the game score, Hilbert gives the locations as Rochester and Chicago. I assume the latter to be an error.
