Event table notes

Event data
Place: Atlanta (?)
Start date: 1877
End date: Oct. 1877
The result is given in the Illustrated London News of 13 Oct. 1877, saying it was 'a match played recently', so perhaps finished in Sept. or early Oct. 1877. No location is given, but other matches between these two players took place in Atlanta, so perhaps this match did, too. The scores is given as 'eleven games to ten' for Wurm (no mention of draws), so this could not be the match of Apr. 1877, which was won by Orchard.
