Event table notes

Event data
Name: Lowenthal Cup Tournament
Place: London, England
Start date: May 1878
End date: June 1878
 
Notes:
The rules for the Löwenthal Cup stated that the event was to be played in May, but the earliest report of the result I have found comes in the 15 June 1878 issue of the Illustrated London News (p.567), so I guess that it finished in early June. Sergeant gives Wayte's score as 13.5/14.
