Notes:
Result +9-7=2 for Donaldson given in the Schachzeitung of Oct. 1859 (p.326), from a letter by Donaldson. I will guess that these games were played earlier in 1859. The Schachzeitung of Jan.-Feb. 1860 (pp.77-78) has two games between these two players dated to May 1859, which may belong to this match.
