Event table notes

Event data
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: June 1889
End date: June 1889
Offhand games +4-0=0 for Bird. According to Hilbert (p.57), Bird arrived in Philadelphia on 27 June 1889. His departure date is not given, but his games against Shipley seem to have been played before the end of June, so I am guessing that these offhand games were also, though they may have been later.
