Event table notes

Event data
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: Sep. 1869
End date: Nov. 1869
 
Notes:
The New York Clipper of 2 Oct. 1869 and the Era of 17 Oct. 1869 (p.7) say it had begun, and the latter gives the first game, so I will guess that it started in Sept. 1869. The New York Clipper of 6 Nov. 1869 gives the final score, so it ended either in late October or early November 1869.
