Event table notes

Event data
Place: Paris
Start date: 1849
End date: June 1849
Reported in the July 1849 issue of La Régence (p.220), as the first of two matches between these two opponents. The Aug. 1849 issue has a win of Saint-Léon's (pp.251-253), dated 16 June 1849, which must be part of the second match, since he did not win any in the first match. Thus, the first match must have ended before this date; I am guessing that it ended earlier in June 1849.
