NY Tribune Mar 22, 1883 pg 3: Interview w Steinitz on Morphy mtg. Has been said
met under pretense of being lawyer interested in his law case. No, he would
be too shrewd for that. I have been interesting myself in intl law w thought
of writing treatise on it, wrote to him about it. No answer, stopped and gave
card. Read gave wild questioning look, then recovered and shook hands, said name
was well known, entered conversation. Met him twice after, very pleasant and
agreeable. When crowd collected each time excuse self pleading pressing legal
engagements. I am angry at crowd. Interesting to talk to. Shrewd, practical, 
apparently excellent health. Derangement purely local, could be cured. Has
idea conspiracy against him led to losing money. I suggested he speak with
legal friends, but added even Morphy may be mistaken. That is it, he said,
people think I am nothing but a chess player, and that I know nothing about
law. Thinks would play again if approached correctly. Now will not look at bd
or go to club afraid will make him play. I know feeling. 1867 I suffered
sunstroke, wks I had no energy esp for chess. Decided to believe effort would
cure affliction; torture at 1st vut worked. When Morphy sits at bd finds cant
concentrate, thinks something wrong with him; rather than admit pleads
engagement rushes away. Told people should let him sit and watch, never ask to
play; he will himself in time. Why is money so important to him? Wants to get
married, always having "love affairs", all in NO humor him. Most chivalrous.
If sees strange face and pleases him lifts hat and bows, some ladies stop and
speak kindly, will follow at distance sometimes for hrs, note address in
notebook. Regrets money loss because wants to marry - think the cure is chess.
How compare to current? Game has progressed, 20 times num 1st class. Would
have to alter style as in my use of K; may lose OTB but not tnmt. Corr chess
fairest test, match fairer than tnmt since draws affect in tnmt. Strongest
living include Zukertort, Mackenzie, Martinez, perhaps Mason. Mackenzie genius
but will not study modern game, to my grief persists in Morphy style. Hardest
opponent was Anderssen. Thinks peaked 1872-73. 1877 relaps sunstroke of 1867,
not yet completely recovered; still equal 1st 1878 tnmt despite feeling
poorly. Getting stronger now, hope for complete recovery. Wish Morphy would
try same way. Has gone to Havana, will return 2 wks then to Europe, not likely 
to play again in NY

his own, delightful gambits. When I was young played several games vs Buckle

like cross between Northern Finn with W Highlander Ireland or Scotland. 
Square eyebrows, penetrating eyes. After 1st few moves sizes up by series
glances, strokes silky beard. As soon as opponent moves puts out little W hand
and makes move. Takes cigar from bystander. Converses w all during play in 
exquisite English. Someone poking fun of Hellwitz who is a Teuton of Teutons
saying name is Slavonic meaning son of Hell. Zukertort moves while talking
about Slavonic race. Claims Poles are Slavs, not Tartars as speaker claimed,
cannot confuse because left to right writing peculiar to Aryans while Semites
right to left and Mongols top to bottom. Man points out Polish nobles shaved
heads and left scalp-lock, earliest Greek and Saxon inscriptions top to bottom.
Zukertort gave man penetrating glance, then turned to game in key position
thought hard bumps on head where phrenologists place reflection seemed to swell
visibly, mouth lines deepened, hand over beard. Almost touched piece then moved
hand away, looked fixedly at opponent, moved wo taking eyes off opponents face;
opponent resigned 5 more moves. Zukertort sipped black coffee with air of

friends betting 5-4 on him. Most players here foreign, learned overseas. 20
yrs ago only 1 US chess col, now over 50. Both have supporters. Zukertort,
who is spending most of time practicing Manhattan, told Trib reporter that
Steinitz fine player. In London St George backs Zukertort, London backs 
Steinitz. Steinitz says will decide must disputed issue of chp, never
admitted that he was dethroned, says all should be match not tnmt he never
claimed chp on basis tnmt wins. High stake money and prev unheard-of expense
guarantee. Umpires chosen by each at game time to settle disputes. Steinitz
says in much better health than 2 yrs ago. Chess growing, now played by wealthy
and educated. Some openings analysed thru 22 or 23 moves but future likely to
break down these analyses. Austrian by birth, London 20 yrs, 2 yrs US but would
rather die in US than live in England

NY Tribune Jan 11, 1886 pg 2: Steinitz vs Zukertort starts today. Long 
negotiations.  Rules those of Handbuch with exception "that should both players 
repeat the same series of moves six times in succession either party may claim a
draw"; never printed in English before, Steinitz translated. Umpires Steinitz:
Thomas Frere who has been his rep in negotiations, Afolphus Urohle [Mohle]
for Zukertort; both mems Manhattan CC. Will use bd owned by Frere played on
by Morphy, Marache, Lichtenhein, Paulsen, Robertson [WHO?]. Large display bd.
Spectators allowed pocket bds but forbidden from analyzing or discussing while
in prog. Many mems dropped by to ask of health of players and prospects of 
game. Little betting but even chances given on Steinitz. At St George London
small odds given on Zukertort but at London CC 5-4 on Steinitz. Players
fenced off by ropes. Program issued hhas history of match, places and dates 
prev games between the 2, rules and regulations, reminiscences of former chps
by WJA Fuller. Trib will have accounts with Mackenzie analysis

NY Tribune Jan 12, 1886 pg 5: Geo T Green's brief into to Steinitz vs Zukertort
given. Sit on slightly elevated platform, using bd Morphy played on. Clock
mechanism described. Both short. Steinitz heavier, indeed heavy for short
man, full face, high bulging forehead, bushy brown beard, much dark hair,
imperturbably amiable expression. Zukertort could portray Mephistopholes,
long thin face, pointed beard, long sharp nose, hair scant revealing bald
patch. Shrewd, wide-awake look, occasionally bunches eyebrows, corrugating
brow and scanning adversary as tho to read thoughts. Would bother nervous man
but Steinitz phlegmatic. Zukertort at times knots legs together beneath seat.
Only special few admitted to game room, others watch thru open doors or on
large chess bd in hall. Umpires Thomas Frere (even smaller than contestants
and entirely bald), Adolph Mohle (good deal length but little breadth or 
weight) allowed in as is DM Martinez who in 1882 paid $1000 to Steinitz for
privilege losing 7 straight; artist allowed in briefly to sketch chps at work.
Not more than 40 present includes 2 women when started; eventually ~70. Brainy
looking lot, careless of dress, hair ruffled from running fingers thru. Germans
predominate, many smoke. Miss Steinitz near door, bears strinking resemblance
to father, sells her fathers photo (50 cents), pocket chess books, chess mags
etc; has not been able to get photos Zukertort but hopes to have on sale soon.
Present include WJA Fuller, Rev JH Fitzgerald (Newark), Samuel Loyd probelmist
recently elected pres NYCC, Froeden and Kalunbach 2 present leaders NYCC hdcp,
Dr Juan N Navarro Mexican Consul-Gen swarthy with frosty hair and beard as 
interested chess as diplomacy, John S Ryan who has been practicing with Steinitz
last 2 mos and completely confident in him, FM Teed and William M De Visser of
match cttee, Reading [Redding] chp of SF. Starts 2:05, Zukertort tosses coin
and wins 1st move puts coin back in pocket unaware some would pay 100 times
value for coin as souvenier. Zukertort 22 moves in hr, Steinitz 20. Zukertort
seems more nervous, often strokes beard, changes foot position, sometimes beats
tattoo on floor, now+then rises and walks. After going on hr and half Zukertort
yawns. Steinitz does not move, short legs not well adapted to walking. Many
have pocket chess bds which is legal but analyze while in prog which is not.
Watch with attention prize fight. Adjourned 6 o'clock, Zukertort rises from
table so does not see last move. Soon after resume both pull out cigars.
Steinitz placid content look. Zukertort never looks at opponent under any
circs. After 9PM move rapidly, W resigns 9:30. Steinitz radiant, accepts quiet
congrats but cannot imagine him looking miserable, features not asapted to it

NY Tribune Jan 13, 1886 pg 5: Many men with big heads, bushy hair, foreheads 
wrinkled by hard thinking gathered NYCC and Manhattan CC to play over Steinitz
vs Zukertort game. Steinitz play greatly admired. Steinitz was favorite before
begin, now far ahead in betting of which not a little is indulged. Loser will
get $750 which is more than either has won in single match. Game 2 today.
Result by no means foregone, Zukertort full of resources, games will be
studied world wide. We will have Mackenzie analysis, 1 of few in US qualified
to comment on such eminent masters

NY Tribune Jan 14, 1886 pg 5: Steinitz vs Zukertort game 2. Steinitz 1st there,
shakes hands with Zukertort's umpire Mohle and his own Frere who is diminutive
in all but head. Full, chubby face beams effusively on all, brow as smooth
as child. Zukertort arrives few min later, fur cap and long coat trailing
to heels. Throws open cape with quick gesture, searching glance spectators.
Steinitz ambles up to him, can hardly be said to walk, exchange greetings;
Steinitz placid as pond Zukertort restless and nervous with deep lines on
sharp features. Twice as many spectators as game 1; they keep overcoats on
and shiver until windows sealed and doors closed, much smoking room gets warm
but not warmth conducive to mental vigor. Green reserves front row for ladies
who do not come, vacant half day til rescinds reservation. Hall well filled.
Paterson calls out move. Game description. Early moves very fast. Steinitz sips
brandy and water, hands in pockets for warmth; chubby placid man studied by
spectators. Man apparently least interested in him is Zukertort, rises and
paces, looks at portraits of self and Steinitz in illustrated journal umpires
have. When Steinitz at last makes move gets up and extends dumpling-like little
hands over flames. Most comfortable are umpires, kept near fire. Miss Steinitz
shivers near door; has added Zukertort photo to her collection, a profile view
which is to his advantage and sells many of them. Zukertort's turn to think
taps floor, strokes beard, leans on each arm, passes hand over brow. Adjourned
at 6. Steinitz passes thru hall, shakes hands with some friends, look seems to
show thoroughly satisfied. Resumes 8. Steinitz in trouble but imperturbable as
ever, resigns; some clapping, Zukertort lifts right hand deprecatingly. Rival
chps discuss the might have beens. Present include Kaiser (Philad), Charles L
Edwards (NO), Max Judd (St Louis, chp of West), CM Knox. 1-1. Game Steinitz-

NY Tribune Jan 15, 1886 pg 8: Zukertort brilliant, unexpected win has increased
interest in match; games discussed NYCC and Manhattan CC but few dared suggest
improvements

NY Tribune Jan 16, 1886 pg 5: Steinitz vs Zukertort game 3. Steinitz ambles in 
1st, smiling at all, shaking hands with acquaintances. Happiest looking man in 
room, face youthfully smooth. Zukertort's face full of creases, walks into hall 
with quick nervous tread hardly noticing anyone. Old chess-players, some famous
veterans, scent battle and hurry to it. Most conspicuous WJA Fuller with
venerable, Darwin-like head; Morphy liked to beat him more than any other man.
Mrs Worrall prob best-known US female player who 2 yrs ago beat Steinitz rcvg N
braves out smoke. Delmar, Hanham, Philip Richardson, Leslie Bruce, Albert
Merriam, Max Judd, August Vorrath, Perrin. Game description. Rule forbidding
analysis ignored, buzz of conversation such that disturbs players, even amiable
Steinitz looks appealingly at spectators while Zukertort frowns and eventually
calls out Silence, please in tone more command than entreaty. Some curious
comments (given) man saying Steinitz has best boiler need big stomach, friends 
response need nerves and grit not much room needed. Zukertort's stock has
risen; Miss Steinitz sells out of his photos. Steinitz gleeful look at
adjournment. Steinitz gets into time trouble, forced back but chubby face shows
no sign of concern; says I resign in undertone for all spectators know from
expression could be announcing mate. White resigns shouts Paterson, slight
hand-clapping immediately checked. Sends Zukertort stock above par. Game 3
Zukertort-Steinitz QGD W47 analysis Mackenzie

NY Tribune Jan 18, 1886 pg 8: Steinitz vs Zukertort match announcement

NY Tribune Jan 18, 1886 pg 5: Steinitz, Zukertort both affable and exceptionally
modest. Reporter called on Steinitz at his home, found him hard at work
analyzing for Intl Chess Mag assisted by co-ed Eugene Soberheim. Readily
consented to talk chess. Tho looks phlegmatic has found to sorrow he has
plenty of nerves, has had several sleepless nights. Expected it, he says 
cheerily, always suffers such at tnmts. Vienna 82 after 8 days stood 11-12th
but when recovered form slept well and tied for 1st. Same London 83. This
match has strain of mag added to games, but expect to improve esp when
sleep well. Asked how far looks ahead says some 2 move probs puzzle expert while
solves 6er at glance. Ordinarily ~5-6 moves. Huge number possibilities like
old prob start with penny double with each nail in horse's shoes. Key to
good play judgment, accuracy, memory, imagination. Nervous temperament best;
good players generally suffer from nerves. Feels chess excellent mental exercise
but as with physical must know own limits; counteracts drinking and gambling,
good for workingman. Asked opinion of Morphy says with smile knows it is 
delicate subject for Americans. owes much to Morphy, his victories stimulated
Steinitz interest. Tried to imitate until found modern progress had improved
on his play. Best of time, original, invented new openings, genius. Popular
notion of Morphy wrong, was not brilliant in ordinary understanding of word;
strong and safe vs good players never voluntarily sacd P in match games;
brilliant style was vs weak players. Of men he beat only one remained front
rank after his retirement; Anderssen [Paulsen?]. Who knows what could have 
done, for all know may still be best but foolish to say no progress since his
day. Zukertort seems to hold same view of Morphy. WJA Fuller wrote of Morphy's
Q sac declined by Paulsen. Zukertort said Morphy overlooked forced mates
during this game; shows not always best like all players focus in on one
possibility miss others

NY Tribune Jan 19, 1886 pg 4: Zukertort showing more ability so far, leads 3-1.
Steinitz never starts well in matches. Some feel if Steinitz paid more attention
to play and less on taking notes for pub would not have blundered like yesterday

NY Tribune Jan 19, 1886 pg 2: Chess fans still watch chp match, content to sit
and watch for hrs. About 100 for game 4 including 5 ladies whose passion for
chess stronger than aversion to smoke; occupy front seats and gaze so intently
at bd that only back of bonnets seen and these are of most sober character. As
Steinitz toddles past spectators to playing room remarks he slept 7 hrs, feels 
better tho still not quite fighting form. Placid, chubby face does not look like
one kept awake by nerves. Would be easy to believe of Zukertort with his sharp
features, sunken and furrowed, incisive and impatient manner but so far he
says has slept well perhaps because ahead. Game description. Looks like sharp
fight but experts say book. Zukertort moves much faster, Steinitz has been
pressed for time. Steinitz 20 moves in hr, Zukertort 30. Zukertort often pads
up+down, darting sharp glances like caged lion tho nothing leonine in small
figure. Steinitz serene looking, pudgy hands on knees. With opera glass can
see perspiring with effort. Steinitz terrible blunder, experts disgusted, call
4th rate. Tries to be cheerful, says he often breaks up at start. Friends 
advise him to let chess mag "go hang" during match. Zukertort said he suffered
from sleeplessness during London tnmt and took aconite, braced up, got so far
ahead could afford to lose, stopped the aconite and collapsed. Game Steinitz-
Zukertort Ruy B39 notes Mackenzie

NY Tribune Jan 20, 1886 pg 8: Yesterday wet, many chess players came to NY and
Manhattan CCs. Much regret Steinitz blunder Monday. All want best to win but
not via blunder. Steinitz friends show no sign of hedging, recall Steinitz often
starts weakly. Correction typos earlier game scores

NY Tribune Jan 21, 1886 pg 4: Chess match leaves NY, Zukertort leads 4-1. Next 
St Louis. Chances favor Zukertort; Steinitz play disappoints friends. Monday bad
blunder, outgeneralled and demoralized, Zukertort calm and confident. Public
interest in chess never great, match so 1-sided will give less attention than
heretofore

NY Tribune Jan 21, 1886 pg 5: Many new faces for game 5 Zukertort, Steinitz, 
since if Zukertort wins will be last chance to see NY. Group of ladies among
newcomers, brought chess bd and chatted about phases of game in open defiance
rules. Birdlike twittering offered such pleasant contrast to guttural undertones
that Green did not have heart to stop and none asked him to. Arrived few min
before game, many hands grasped Steinitz plump little fingers and asked how he
felt; said slept well and didn't work on mag would give good account self.
Looks 1st rate while little doctor's careworn face belies his statement that he
is in good trim. He doesn't court inquiries and strides thru briskly. Game
description. Zukertort moves quickly, looks sure when moves. Steinitz ponders
long and never seems sure he has done best thing; his clock seems to annoy him
and often eyes it solicitously; only 1 min left move 30. Uses twice as
much time as Zukertort. Zukertort paces; asked if keeps game in mind's eye
says no, dismisses til back at bd, must save brain power. Steinitz uses hr for 
17 moves, Zukertort 30 min. Steinitz smokes cigar, puffs vigorously during 
knotty prob. Zukertort gives him light for 2d cigar. Steinitz can't record
last moves before 2d time control, Zukertort reads back moves, pleasant to
see these little courtesies in view of rumors of bad feelings. Steinitz 
frequent sips of water, uses plain goblet in place amber colored one used 
earlier which made spectators think diluted with brandy or similar. Zukertort
lights cigarette, a few friends wink knowingly at him and he replies with
smile of self-gratulation. Spectators ignorant of meaning but leaks out later
that told some well-wishers when felt sure of win would light cigar or 
cigarette. Told he has good start Zukertort says he has known men to get much
better start and lose. next St Louis Game 5 Zukertort-Steinitz QGD W32 notes
Mackenzie

NY Tribune Jan 22, 1886 pg 8: Steinitz friends confident; own placid confidence
helps. None of us weakening says friend and umpire Thomas Frere, have backbones
of iron. General feeling in city that would win has changed to foreboding of
loss. Natural Steinitz favorite here despite London 1883 since lived in area
since 1883, said many flattering things of country; also had advantage head-to-
head. Some say has passed peak, others feel will come back. 2 chps played whist
after Monday's game. Zukertort looked elated but Steinitz did not look one bit
cast down. Zukertort always looks exceedingly nervous; admits he is nervous but
said there are different forms of nerves, has trained self to dismiss thoughts
of pending game and thus save mental energy. Awakened speculation how would
fare vs Morphy; those informed more by patriotism say Morphy could beat both
in consultation, others say each would give Morphy hard game. Contest has
popularized chess

NY Tribune Feb 6, 1886 pg 5: St Louis game 2 Steinitz vs Zukertort. Spectators 
increased rapidly as game approached. General Sherman and wife were center of
interesting group, old warrior continually asked for opinions of chps. Chess
eds Chicago, Cincinnati, KC watched intently. Steinitz early, looked serene
and calm, paced up and down in meditative way with eyes on floor. Zukertort
sat chatting with Max Judd and other friends; said several times hoped Steinitz
would do some of his thinking before game and save time. Game description.
Both men were ill-humored and lost no opportunity to make each other
uncomfortable. Steinitz as deliberate as usual, seemed to make Zukertort
nervous; rose, walked round room, smoked cigarettes while waiting. Mammoth bd
for 300 spectators. After loss Zukertort told Trib reporter move 29 intended to
move Q instead of B; requested Steinitz to play game from move 28 but Steinitz
said was too tired. Max Judd sat down with him and after half hr game drawn. 
Steinitz jubilant, said now feels sure of winning. Zukertort spent most
of time after holding post-mortem. Does not seem dejected but says has been in
exceedingly bad form since arrived. Game 7 Zukertort-Steinitz QGD B35 notes
Mackenzie

NY Tribune Feb 9, 1886 pg 5: Steinitz vs Zukertort St Louis game 3. Much larger
crowd, unfortunately short and uninteresting. After 2-3 moves Zukertort called
nervously for umpire. His clock had broken down and refused to tick. He shook it
viciously and it obstinately refused to go. Umpire and several spectators shook
it wo success. Official scorer Josephs started with it to nearest jeweller.
Recess taken, players wandered around room chatting pleasantly. Next game Wed.
Game 8 Steinitz-Zukertort Ruy D22 notes Mackenzie

NY Tribune Feb 11, 1886 pg 5: Steinitz wins 3d consec, says confident of win.
Feels better, nervousness and insomnia gone, feels self while in NY was
unfit for play and made horrible blunders. Nervous attacks his bane before
as in early Vienna tnmt (now says was 13th end 1st wk). Chess experts present
Gidor [Isidor?] Judd, EC Simmons, Adolph Judd, Lewis Haller, SM Joseph,
JE Martin (Toledo), Judge Woerner, Max Judd, E Hoelke (Leadville), Colonel
George Rowley; more as game proceeded. Dr CDN Campbell umpire for Steinitz,
Isidor Judd for Zukertort. Game description. Zukertort looked tired and worn,
played slowly with none of usual buoyancy. After Steinitz 38th move waved hand
deprecatingly and said It's your game. Few min returned to bd, told friends
how he lost. Claimed mistake move 30, Steinitz said would make no difference,
played out and drew both believed he was right. Steinitz said best yet will
analyze in mag. Zukertort said doesn't know what's wrong, pursued by bad luck
since came to St Louis and today felt out-of-sorts; doesn't have admiration for
this game which friend Steinitz has. Resume New Orleans 2 wks tied 4-4. Game 9

match. Does not look well. Head becoming somewhat bald as wife noted right 
away on return. Strained, some wks before will recover. Zukertort in SF, playing
tnmts and blindfolds. Was talk of playing exhibition games NO for prizes at
20/1 which would have favored Zukertort, but Zukertort had other arrangements
and Steinitz behind on Intl Chess Mag. Steinitz excellent spirits, did not
feel confident until drew game St Louis and got good sleep. After game 1 NY
worked 17 hrs on mag when should have rested and outdoor exercise. Those who
said no originality not competent judge. Morphy held up as greatest; don't 
know whether could beat him but his attacks found defective and not in use.
When opposed by strong players never deviated from book. No 2 games this series
alike more than 3-4 moves. Develop slowly and surely. Think has refuted double
Ruy, will no longer be used. Believes Zukertort number 2 in world. Praise
chess as greatest game, played wo liquor. Zukertort claim sickness NO unfair,
no more entitled to delay then when I had insomnia NY. Very day used drs
prescription for rest day played ruber whist with me as partner; I told him that
was enough and would appeal to ref if more. Zukertort blunders were in losing
position; mine in NY were while ahead. Don't know if can stand strain again;
health not good and limb greatly troubles. Don't know if will have rematch.

NY Tribune Sept 4, 1887 pg 9: Arrival Mackenzie, Blackburne will ve red ltr day
for US chess history. Match being arranged between them by NYCC will be greatest
since Anderssen vs Morphy. Expected tomorrow or next day. Until few yrs ago
Mackenzie known as theoretical genuus but did not play at best in tnmts. Born
Scotch and unlike another prominent player is extremely proud of native land.
Became British capt but promotion too slow, came to US and achieved capt rank
again during rebellion, mustered out after. Can hardly remember when didn't play
chess. Well known analyst. Since left military excellent living thru chess. 1
of best instructors ever in US, excellent simuls (15-4-1 last before leaving).
Last US match easily beat Lipschutz. Tall and straight w that peculiar grace
of action+easy manner gentleman of British army noted for. ~50, long flowing
mustache, goatee sprinkled w gray. Blackburne who will play him for world chp
not as well known in US except to chess enthusiasts. Prominent 20 yrs; was
when Steinitz beat him 1876 that dubbed self chp. Steinitz accused by many 
of refusing to give Blackburne chance to play except under most strenuous
conditions which could not accept; however may be Steinitz not considered in 
this chp contest tho he is supposed to hold it. NYCC will back Mackenzie for
all needed. Blackburne known blind, often vs 18 1st class winning majority,
finished 2d to Mackenzie. Mackenzie has lead head-to-head. Mackenzie win 
Frankfurt places him in higher class than before. Blackburne beat Zukertort

Feb 11, 1890 pg 3: Due to excitement of Tschigorin vs Gunsberg, little has
been said so far re Mackenzie who arrived Havana mid-Jan. Has been ill for
nearly yr, since last left Havana. Illness kept from NY 89; went to play
Paris tnmt which did not come off, then became very ill was doubted would
recover. Tho not strong now much improved. Playing well as ever, lost only
1 of over 20 in recent simul. Now playing 10 game series vs DA Ponce, talented
Havana amateur well known in NY chess circles. Tschigorin whole game riveted
to chair, looks like working hard, never time to spare. Gunsberg walks
about room, occasionally converses, looks earnest but not emotional when
thinking, uses far less time; as says does best and can do no more. Gunsberg
points out Tschigorin capable physically working harder, I would break down,
save effort, avoid visionary schemes. Games very complex; game 16 had position
3 Tschigorin pieces attacked by Ps, Golmayo had to verify position; see-sawed
spectators thinking each lost/won. Description of effect time pressure.
Tschigorin best at attack and openings, Gunsberg fine judgment seems to pride
self on less knowledge openings. Gunsberg brought stakes, Tschigorin's covered
by Havana, strain because locals root for Tschigorin. Difference 20 games vs
10 game up. Cuban players want to take advantage presence 3 masters [Mackenzie]
for small tnmt, but Gunsberg unlikely to stay, already longer than planned.

NY Tribune Feb 19, 1890 pg 3: Corr from Havana writes re Gunsberg vs Tschigorin.
Cuban sympathies with Tschigorin. When Gunsberg arrived lost 2 ro Vasquez thru
cautious play; in 1 Gunsberg was R up in better position. One kind-hearted man
went so far as to pity Gunsberg who was so gentlemanly and nice and would be
crushed by Tschigorin. When Tschigorin won game 1 easily viewed as over, even
more after 2-0. Started to sympathize w Gunsberg. Gunsberg notes now that has
turned are making excuses for Tschigorin; too cautious or careless or slept 
poorly. Gunsberg in crucial portion did not play cautiously, instead bold. Game

5 Taubenhaus-Schallopp 2N B21 w notes. On visit to NY Gunsberg remarked odd that
masters pay little attention to theoretical progress; confine selves to pet
opening know well and use dull French or Sic which hardly needs any book. Then
he himself declares that cable move in Evans game must be error, ignores that I
devote whole page to innovation in Modern Chess Instructor. Will play vs
Gunsberg as often as he likes in our match. Labourdonnais CC of Columbia opens
season; has existed many yrs and has top players of college. Hodges 10-3-1 vs
top Bkln CC players, 2-1 blind at Staten Island Cricket Club. 1st message sent
by Steinitz to Tschigorin landed in Austrian village 345 people, 2d at Havana
newspaper; 3d worked. Gunsberg got judgment against Austrian newspaper for
libel, but London court would not sanction prosecution for libel as intended
to be brought against Gunsberg and Lee. Gunsberg comments that Steinitz match
almost settled, and reports were incorrect that Havana CC turned down his
proposal of Gunsberg vs Blackburne match; didn't decline but subject to other
proposals prev made not settled. Expects settled in fortnight, since Blackburne
was top English at Manchester would be contest for English chp. Latest news
from Havana is they will not hold Blackburne vs Gunsberg match there. Stories

Feb 4, 1891 pg 4: Ltr from Steinitz. Death Charles Bradlaugh removed 1 of
England's most enthusiastic and liberal chess supporters. Recalls 1880
when Lord Randolph Churchill, who Steinitz played as Oxford student 1869
and later at St George CC, invited Steinitz for instruction at his home; usu 
start 10 AM and last several hrs. Churchill enjoyed greatly, doctor ordered
him to take mind off biz and found chess best. Never talked politics during
chess, but 1 day said had to leave due to hot debate re Bradlaugh affair.
I asked him to be lenient, said had known Bradlaugh 18 yrs found him
gentleman; Churchill said glad to hear he had good qualities would like to 
know more about hom personally. That was day when Churchill in parliament read
disrespectful language about Q in Bradlaugh book and threw it across room.
Asked about Bradlaugh as chess player and personal bearing; assured he often
fights tooth and nail in house w those who are his friends outside. Churchill
visits ceased towards end 1881, was warm promoter and spectator London 1883.
Bradlaugh strong, played wo odds, occasionally beat masters including me
offhand; whenever won great lawsuit came to Simpson's and treated pros w
champagne; never introd religious or political opinions on anyone, never
took offense if his authority disputed. I joked that if he wanted to persuade
people not to believe in Moses, Christ, Mohammed cannot expect them to believe
in Bradlaugh. Many yrs went to chess event, made speeches mentioning chess
royalty and chess clergy which did not betray satirical intention. Not rich but
always subscribed liberally to tnmts. Also a master at checkers, would give man
to top players including Blackburne who plays very well

ungenerous; exactly reverse was case, Steinitz was leading from game 7 til end
and thus Steinitz benefited from draws. Shown by playing attacking game (4
Evans) while Steinitz used QP. Steinitz notes Gunsberg aiming for trades even
in game 19 whcih was must-win; have been informed he cabled game was drawn when
just a few moves in friend was to get scoop over others; I asked Gunsberg what 
if he had made error and lost he said would chance that. Clear that in last game
aim was not to win but reduce his losses. He put up 30L of own for match and
may have wanted tie to get back stakes. Steinitz on his dilemna vs Evans, had
to retain chief figure of defence but not give help to Tschigorin; forced
to select inferior move. Notes to  EA Bancroft (New London), Gen HA Frink,

Says Mackenzie came to Minden's office saying was ill, needed morphine; Minden 
refused. Went to Dr Muellenbach, refused again. Apr 6 rcvd vial w 32 doses,
to take teaspoon every hr til relieved. Minden says has reason to believe
prescription was refilled day before death. Found Mackenzie dead, looked like
morphine poisoning, found empty bottle which contained morphine but never
was investigated. No autopsy. Dr Weissman insisted died of consumption

NY Tribune May 1, 1891 pg 4: Chess-Table Talk by Steinitz. Cable match vs
Tschigorin produced unprecedented chess interest. Are regular cable matches
eg Australia but w short time limit. Previous matches include London vs Vienna
1872 won by London, Liverpool beating Calcutta, Paris beating Vienna 1885,
St Ptbg beating London 1887. St Ptbg also lost match vs obscure Siberian CC.
New feature was test theory of opening. Tschigorin played well. Wo cavil let
me say I had some disadvantages. Made cheap and healthy entertainment for 
masses thru press, hope precursor many club and individ. No accumulation of
time rule, not as I planned; 3 days wo accumulation too short. Gunsberg
match distracted and exhausted from doing justice to cable, led to fatal error
in 2N game move after adj; if I had known Gunsberg match would come off would
have postponed cable match. Also Tschigorin headstart in Evans since I thought
starting from 1 move earlier; I did not notice this since Mintz intermediary
rcvd ltr. Feels Tschigorin won thru moves of modern school. I may be growing
too old but modern school will survive and win. Adolfo Moliner ltr given, 
Havana will back for 10 game up match vs Tschigorin Havana CC Dec-Jan

NY Tribune Aug 20, 1891 pg 7: Paulsen obit. Learned chess from father, 1 of
best players that part Germany. 1854 to US, estabd biz Dubuque w bro Ernest.
Got local chess rep, invited to Chicago beat best there. NY 1857. Challenged
Morphy on return, declined. 1861 Bristol, Kolisch match, London 1862.
Other tnmts won Leipzig 77 over Anderssen, Zukertort; less success Baden 70,
Vienna 73 and 82. Matches vs Anderssen: 1862 tied 3-3 but Paulsen won 2 more
for separate prizes, 1876 5-4, Leipzig 77 5-3-1. Also beat Neumann 5-3,
Adolf Schwarz 5-2, Max Lange 5-2. Fame blindfold. Played 14 blind Dubuque
1858, passed only once Zukertort 16. Beat both Blackburne, Mackenzie during
blind exhibitions when both young. Thoroughly straightforward and honest,
modest and unassuming manners made popular w amateurs and experts

Dr Hunt, large attendance included Macdonnell. FJ Lee also at congress.
Credit Skipworth arrangements. Lasker visit to German Exhibition very popular;
thru Friday was 79-0-1 mostly vs novices. Friday won single game for small stake
vs Gibbons. Sat 15-2-3 simul 2 hrs. Wed 1-1-1 blind. Trying to arrange match
Lasker vs a London master. Amusing account Lasker at exhibit given from Leeds
Mercury. Intent of Lasker exhibit to show dull and backward English can beat
them at chess on own ground. Learn Bird, Mason willing to dispute invader. Many
spectators knew no chess but enjoyed watching features of face losers. Then 
came Max Muller, no mean performer himself, Lasker won. Ladies tried and could
not turn tide. Next day crowded all day. Dr SF Smith put up good game, lost.
Lasker 1-1-1 blind does not compare w Blackburne but amazes some; winner was
J Sargent of Brixton CC. USCA mtg Lexington ends, thx Lexington CC, Gilberg,
Loyd for contributions. New officers J Warren Hulse (St Louis), Charles A
Gilberg, Shipley, J Hinrichs (Baltimore), BF Williams (Lexington), Dr ER Lewis
(Indianapolis), Warwick H Ripley (Indianapolis). Late Louis Paulsen genius
of order now recognized, had to pass thru period public derision and 
depreciation. Pioneer of modern school, faced sentimental opposition. I myself
was absolute believer in old style, when I first met Kolisch and Anderssen spoke
derogatorily about Paulsen's style; both warmly defended Paulsen agains my
criticism, set me thinking, as did Paulsen's games of  London 1862. Chess
genius not only brilliant combos. Morphy not opening innovator, Paulsen was.
Tarrasch denies real genius old masters, even Morphy; I must disagree with his
overenthusiasm for modern school. Paulsen genius of highest order tho not of
sort who was admired, yet beat old school masters Anderssen, Kolisch, Neumann.

Was to start Dec 7, Lipschutz and Showalter to arrive St Louis on 5th. 
Showalter wrote ltr saying didn't know what would come of match; Judd agreed
to give Lipschutz $200 expenses win or lose but not a cent to me; I declined to
negotiate further and asked for individ match. Judd then agreed to give him
$100 if lost and $50 if won triangular, Showalter agreed to play but only
would put up $250 for stakes which he deposited w ES Rowse of St Louis. Said
ready to play triangular or just Judd, prefers Judd alone w understanding
winner would play Lipschutz; says wants to play both, feels in better form
than ever. Showed this to Lipschutz who says obvious Showalter never wanted to
play triangular, last Sunday I agreed to play him anywhere, did not know he
had privilege to come in for $250 after he agreed to $500. Press time learned

Evans after my hard blow to it game 17. Interesting issue whether Tarrasch or
Tschigorin should rank higher; on own feel Tarrasch. Tarrasch may be greatest

w notes. After Havana match Tschigorin tried to persuade me to accept invite
to St Ptbg for another contest of same description. Told me match or no match
can guarantee splendid reception and excellent financial terms. Russian nobles
and wealthy amateur want a chess event, could engage me even for series 
exhibition games. Little time to discuss but had already declared my intent
to retire from public contests prob for good, and am bound to put out 2d vol
Modern Chess Instructor and to recover arrears for Intl Chess Mag. Tschigorin
still pleaded, said I would consider; do not want to be pledged to retire or
not for now. For reasons unconnected to chess which do not want to dwell on,
entertain objection to Russian engagement. I cannot be said to have shirked mtg
strongest opponents, 2 yrs ago tried to arrange Tarrasch match but could not, 
now young Lasker declared in handsome and modest ltr to Moliner that tho ready
to play any English master does not feel ready yetto play for world chp. Match
betwen me and any out of question for some time. Ltr given from Spanish 
gentleman he never met, only had corr re his subscription to NY 1889 tnmt book,
Andres Fernandez Pozo of Gijon. Rcvd telegram from Numa Preti of Havana win;
tho likes old school, congrats Steinitz. Has no doubt will play Tarrasch before
long but feels Tarrasch should play Tschigorin 1st, give Steinitz needed rest.
Enrique Conill, rich Havana banker, spontaneously declared would cover all
Steinitz stakes if Havana arranged match. Conill more than average strength,
believe about equal Ponce and Gavilan thus only few shades below masters Golmayo
and Vasquez. Rare power to judge style and strength top players. I cannot do
this while Zukertort and Blackburne good hdcpers, perhaps because I always play
bd and do not deal w peculiarities of opponent. Conill asked me if he could 
give odds of 1 game in bets, I mentioned my tendency to break down, he said
had taken that into account but believes Steinitz will win by 2 or at the
utmost 3. Conill treated me w every kindness and I have personal proof lays
little value on money from chess bets, enters only for sport of mental
superiority. Highest credit to Havana CC for arrangements, and esp for
Golmayo and Moliner. Wonderful hospitality. 1st match in which all refreshments
free important since under doctor's orders drank champagne during play to
brace nerves; club knew this before [USE]. Strangers could visit, and Gilberg,
Densmore (Bkln) and Euphrat (Cincinnati) came. Officers of club where held

4N W14++ w notes. Rcvd pamphlet of Steinitz vs tschigorin games; 1st I heard
of it and no indication that Tschigorin knew. Games have recognized financial
value. Similarly, Havana chp games were appropriated by English journals
wo recompense players and scarcely mention of Amer papers which paid liberal
fees to contestants. Pamphlet has mere game scores from 2 Havana matches,
cable match, 2 games Vienna 82 and London 83; only addition 2 diagrams/pg,
even these slipshod. Author (if may be called) Morgan settles Q of relative
strength by adding all these game scores, ignoring total tnmt scores, and
including cable games w openings selected by Tschigorin and consultation whole
St Ptbg CC vs me alone. Tschigorin seems to be creating confusion w new cable
match rumors; rumored I informally offered challenge to such. Tschigorin
asked for either new match in St Ptbg or new cable match, said could not now
but if ever at future would reserve right to different move (given) in 2N game.

Rynd in Dublin Herald on Tarrasch victory: Tarrasch fine tnmt player, was
handed some gifts by errors which is normal, but also got strange cttee 
decisions. Alapin agreed to D in better position vs Tarrasch; hurt Tarrasch
score wrt those who had beaten Alapin. Later, Dr Noa failed to make 20 moves in
hr by clock, Alapin entitled (aye bound) to claim FF; cttee tried to take into
time registered by clock running after move made, rejected Alapin claim. Soon
after, Tarrasch in losing position vs Loman, claimed time win. Cttee accepted
Tarrasch claim. Alapin resigned from tnmt for injustice. Since more than half
played Alapin's score should stand, cttee cancelled; effectively gains 1.5
(1 for Loman, .5 for Alapin) by cttee decisions. Will no doubt hear more on
Rynd criticisms; this account differs from Wochernschach on Loman which
said cttee ordered new game which Tarrasch won. New mag Chess Fortnightly

Rcvd no formal challenge, only private inquiry re 10RR cross series w Lasker
and Tarrasch, said that after Gunsberg match reject limited matches, and too
busy this season. Havana CC sec says after Walbrodt arrival Havana, when Lasker
had already played Golmayo et al and given performances, was asked to play

school" based on theory that 1 man has rights, but 2 has none. When applies 
this egotistic principle to chess, not unique; seems to feel world chp only at
stake when he plays for it; thus played Tschigorin for "world chp" while world
laughed, then played me at virtual D odds and played to take advantage of this.
Now writes of Columbian congress that tnmt for world chp does not allow for
chp match, gold medal for world chp by US pres. If Tarrasch who has better
record than Lasker wins could laugh at Lasker or Steinitz claiming chp. US pres
does not decide chess issues, Columbian cttee renounced chp claim inserted by

Ruy var. Lasker could not as of yet against victor of Anderssen or Zukertort;
Lasker beat Steinitz but not the Steinitz. Lasker great talent, we spotted

Itself. Pics Hodges, Reichhelm, M Morgan, John Welsh Young, De Visser,
Showalter, SW Bampton, JA Kaiser, Hanham, Lipschutz, Voigt, Shipley. Manhattan
loses to franklin CC as did to Bkln, City, Metropolitan. Club in factions.
Some think CC main object is to provide rooms, sets, bds and arrange tnmts;
feel it is foolish to seek services of a coach eg Steinitz. Some feel can
learn more from watching experts, and match eg Lipschutz vs Showalter greater
interest than skittles of N players. Some say who cares of tnmts and matches,
want place to meet and play skittles, wine and dine; should save money on
matches. What of directors? "Kickers", who like club and its mems, blame
managers for lack of success, say managers think they own club and must wait
til reformers come to office. despite diverse opinions all love the club and 
wish it success. Telegraph play of high order; game descriptions. Manhattan
subs Vorrath, Elwell, Holladay, Gedalia did well by holding own. Reichhelm
most prominent Franklin player tho not much time to practice past 15 yrs,
leisure devoted to theory and analysis of game. Shipley enthusiastic patron.

Tarrasch wrote when moved there could play there daily, which had not been able

at Geraldsgruen, little time for chess. 1887 married, moved to Nuremberg, estabd
good practice. Chess record given; phenomenal tnmt, matches only Tschigorin D

abated. Many young men came from YMCA CC and added strength; men eg De Visser
and Olly strongholds of late, De Visser as far as governance, Olly originated
continuous tnmt which is reponsible for much of success. Unlike other clubs,
always in harmony when club honor at stake; may differ on management of affairs
but when captain Tatum calls ready to play. Pics Eno, Herman Helms. Led to
Metro Chess League win. Note that in presenting portraits capt John C Tatum
missing, could not get him to send pic. Helms present chp, wrote of him when he
won club chp last winter. Young, studious, helped org Bkln YMCA CC 1889,

De Visser is also a founder of Manhattan CC, only recently joined Bkln CC as
active mem (had been hon mem); 1 of best NY, mem Bkln CC directory, played in

club considers him 1 of most trustworthy Xs, always selected as rep, has not
lost single game in matches past 2 yrs. William Duval treas, poet of no mean
order; Xmas wrote mems book in happiest style. Philip Richardson very strong

does not claim to be chp anything or boast; has been urged to play St Ptbg,
will see if biz allows. Excerpt from widely pubd Lasker interview. Exhausted
and threw away wins, too much play for 4 wks but hard to limit w so many
entries, too soon to judge Pillsbury, would play match if Pillsbury backed,
Hastings trying to arrange Lasker vs Pillsbury or Tschigorin, need high stakes
to avoid too many challenges, Hastings, London, Lpool prob can raise $1000
purse. Doesn't play German tnmts because 9/wk 20/1 for small prizes, should
have fewer but larger. Defends describing self as English; treated well there
while in England always fighting someone, teachers and profs because wanted
to follow own thoughts. Tarrasch says in own col Frankfurt paper may not play
St Ptbg. Steinitz ltr given, says may only have great past behind him as opposed
to chess master Horrowitz [sic] he believed said had a great future behind him,
still rightful holder chp and wants to defend vs Lasker or Pillsbury; also

declared most important tnmt ever, winner should be acknowledged chp. Pillsbury
player of genius who admires and reveres teacher Steinitz, will take place of
honor if not 1st, makes fine impression indpdt of chess, amiable, sympathetic
while not modest, proud self-confidence. Tschigorin played best; was in bad
condition when lost to Janowski and ruined chances for 1st. Lasker shows for 1st
time strong player, all prev mean little; Steinitz old and still won prize but
lacks old exactness while eccentricities greater, wonder at his age he plays
so well. Schiffers did well, would do even better if had earnestness of
countryman Tschigorin. Bardeleben vs Blackburne was pure wood-pushing but
Bardeleben great early in tnmt; caused great indignation by leaving rather than
resigning, a new comparison chess and war ie flight from enemy. Schlechter
honorable for Vienna school, does not play for D despite so many, still very
young unlikely to become drawing master. Blackburne diminishing at 50 like
Anderssen, Steinitz. Walbrodt collapse at end. Burn most disappointing, has
not played since 89 no doubt cause. Janowski below expectations, indisposution
and slight ailments; great fault is cannot stand loss, showed temper at 
Hastings justifying rumors about Mieses match; could take lesson from Steinitz
who bore 4 consec losses w dignity and won sympathy all. Bird had some fine
games, remarkable num Ds. Gunsberg too engaged w journalism. Albin ingenious
but below ave strength this tnmt. Marco showed little things can affect, had
always done well, humorously said prob was dining at noon felt like boa
constrictor after. Should start at 9 or 10 AM. Mason on par w last 3 tnmts.
Pollock 2 remarkable wins vs Steinitz, Tarrasch. Mieses also too much
journalism, did well vs top players. Tinsley not as weak as score, dangerous.
Vergani not strong enough for master tnmt. My prob was sea air, every morning
took walk made drowsy; too late changed and won last 6 games. Tnmt Prob 90-91.

Jan 18, 1896 pg 10: Pillsbury's Bad Venture. Pic Pillsbury. Showalter said few
days ago mystery to him that Pillsbury did not win certain games vs Steinitz,
added had heard had gone into some kind of wild partnership w Steinitz, 
Pillsbury putting up large sum money for copyright of games which could not be
copyrighted. Trib reporter asked marean what it meant. Came originally from 1
of Pillsbury's friends, never meant to intimate anything wrong or disagreeable.
Steinitz has no head for biz, Pillsbury cannot afford to lose much money, but
Steinitz persuaded Pillsbury to venture foolish on its face, surmise collapse
disheartened Pillsbury. Buy exclusive rights to pub game reports from St Ptbg 
CC outside of St Ptbg. Impossible to keep out of habds other people. Lost
about $600. Pillsbury "standing on own feet" as far as money St Ptbg. Does not
know whether will be reception when returns if comes home defeated

Jan 19, 1896 pg 19: Tnmt interest within St Ptbg decreased because of matters
which made things unpleasant; adverse comments in papers. St Ptbg sold rights
to Novoe Vremya, other papers held mtg to annul sale allow to pub, charge
nepotism since 2 relatives and eds Novoe Vremya on cttee; tnmt cttee said no
and attacked in papers, ridiculed players as well in try to spoil contest.
Betting also prob, Tschigorin backed for huge amounts by Englishman S S-n
who comes to club in nervous stateand makes Tschigorin nervous, Tschigorin 
will retire if backer not kept away from him. Pillsbury and Steinitz much 
annoyed collapse of copyright plan; club tried to secure but great 
disappointment when English and US papers came w games and news which was not
even in St Ptbg papers. Started charging fees to mems, reporter found 
pencilling and Novoe Vremya protested, lively scene. Pillsbury has kept out
of wrangles and is much liked. Steinitz had 1 w Lasker, and so had Tschigorin. 
Tschigorin took Pillsbury for sleigh ride on Neva pulled by reindeer, enjoyed 
hugely. Pillsbury said enjoys Russian and would try to induce Tschigorin to
play similar tnmt Warsaw which Lasker and Steinitz announced willing to play.
Delegation of French amateurs arrived St Ptbg came to negotiate w players, but

Called by Marean as result of articles written by Broughton in Std Union
June 27 and NY Herald June 29. Charged Elwell, who is not an officer, of
conducting affairs wo consulting exec cttee. Speeches bitter. Pillsbury et al
said would resign unless Broughton ousted. Marean nominated Richard Williams
chair pro tem. Rollin C Breckinridge read charges against Broughton. Elwell
read speech claiming to have discovered Pillsbury, and had raised club to
present status after finding it in a hole. Said could not talk to exec cttee
with Broughton, Dow, De Visser, Eno; respects De Visser and Eno but severe
diffs in mental constitution. Accused Eno of saying would rather lose for club
w De Visser than win w Showalter, and that De Visser tried to suppress Newnes
cable at Pillsbury dinner had to wrestle from him. No respect at all for 
Dow and Broughton. Asks for expulsion Broughton. De Visser said unqualified
falsehood that tried to suppress cable. Eno said he did not want Showalter as
club rep since not then club mem. Club mems asked for articles to be read,
De Visser read them, Geroge Murray expressed views of many saying What do 
these amount to? Broughton said had right to object when acted wo exec cttee;
1st learned of some intl matches when read in papers. Motion to expel Broughton
lost 28-14; motion to refer to cttee to consider lost 21-19. Broughton saying
having won victory would resign; after said not sure. Elwell said his men
would caucus w Marean to decide whether to resign; had ltr from Pillsbury,
Showalter, Burille, Barry would do what caucus decided; said Hodges and Hymes
would prob as well. Treas already resigned. Elwell said too soon to say if
would form a new club

Comments from the Field on Nuremberg players. Lasker shows superiority. 
Maroczy shows strength; said of all opponents feared Steinitz and Teichmann
most tho could not say why. Lost just 1 and should have won at least 3 he drew.
Pillsbury lucky in some games but showed class while severely ill. Tarrasch
takes more care over game than any but Steinitz plays for correctness not
opponent, less classical style and more imagination might suit better. Janowski
opposite, w Charousek most enterprising, improved, could have done even better.
Steinitz still wonderful endurance, grasp complex situation, opening fads; each
win must be wrenched from him, formidable if abandons fads. Schlechter plays
fast and easily, walked around while playing complex game vs Tarrasch, regret
of Vienna school, needs more concentration. Walbrodt powerful defender, if
dependent on chess would be less careless. Schiffers considers tnmt agreeable
holiday, makes most of it, fond of chess indpdt of result only wants to play
good games. Tschigorin impatient, sacs and wins or loses on own terms, low
position here a surprise. Blackburne started well but fell off. Charousek
justified inclusion, all but 1 agreed genius, exceptional theory, confidence
and pluck, aggressive. Marco strong enough to have done better. Albin
erratic and dangerous, ideal for lovers "chessy" games. Winawer passe, out of
practice openings and uses time there needed later, w unlimited time still
dangerous. Showalter stronger than score, morning play problem. Porges has
not played since Dresden 5 yrs ago, in poor health at start wanted to retire,
improved later. Schallopp much below strength, out of practice. Teichmann
started in bad health and did not recover, staying in Germany few wks to recup.
Not much new theory; Charousek new var in Falkbeer Ctr, Steinitz 3..Bc5 in
Ruy found wanting, GP and 2N fashionable, Ruy and QG remain primary. Overall

17. Why am I beaten so badly? 1st, Lasker greatest living, perhaps ever. Chess 
master has no more right to be ill than a general on a battle field. Breakdown
chiefly as uss due to sleeplessness and nervous exhaustion, aggravated by
curious causes which may interest the Kneipp Society in NY. Left Wortshofen
feeling nearly well. Cannot get cold air and water in Russia, windows sealed
and rooms overheated, water pipes by heating ovens. Could not get ice. Reaction
as never had before, 1 day I fainted and if friend had not arrived might have
gone off. Believe I have had best of majority of games til gross blunders
after few hrs when broke up; Lasker could get up and get exercise in another
room but I could not due to bad knee which got worse. Game 11 Steinitz-Lasker

4 rooms, around oblong center which can be shut off, kitchen, chess rooms one
for more social, one quiet room w no smoking for serious play, mtg room/library.
Finest rooms, only comparable British CC. Different career than other clubs,
not just for celebrated players; open to all, strong and weak players, rich
and poor, young and old (mems age 16-90) famous players and men of affairs who
are weak OTB. Poor men who think only of chess on good terms w exquisites
and men of substance. 17 nations; US, England, Ireland, Germany, France,
Austria, Scotland (Spence), Spain (Martinez), Hungary (Lipschutz), Bohemia
(Steinitz), Russia (Brodsky), Poland (Jasnogrodsky), Holland (Van Gelden),
Denmark (Gedalia), Norway (Dahl), Canada (Ascher), India (Beramji, the Parsee);
these foreigners keenest enthusiasts. Late afternoon for casual players, many 
white haired and portly or beardless youths, call selves duffers. Finest US
players here most notably Showalter, Steinitz, Delmar, Beramji [???], Lipschutz.
Steinitz needs no intro, Delmar 1 of US top 25 yrs bold and dashing play, 
Showalter of modern school of curious openings and tricks, Beramji not governed
by books original and unique based on no system more like Persian and Indian
chess curious to watch, Lipschutz perhaps deepest cautious game club's best
analyst. Each room lit by skylight. Description walls, includes pics Morphy,
Steinitz, Zukertort, Mackenzie, old groups notable US players. Tiled fireplace.
Much credit success to recently deceased Charles A Gilberg, Wesley Bigelow,
