Event table notes

Event data
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: Oct. 1837
End date: Oct. 1837
Allen (in Fiske), says these games were played at the last meeting between Schlumberger and Vethake (and Vezin), before Schlumberger's departure for Havana on 9 Nov. 1837. Therefore, I have guessed that the date was Oct. 1837. Though the score was even between Vethake and Schlumberger, Allen reports that Vethake said that he was 'unusually fortunate' on this occasion.
