Spinrad gives this as 4-1 for Lécrivain, citing 'a debatable source on the web' and expressing doubt about who beat who, but La Grande Storia degli Scacchi says clearly that Dubois was ahead in the ratio of 4-1, though how many games were played is not specified. The Chess Monthly of Aug. 1858 gives some games and dates them to July and August 1855.
