Many thanks to <Phony Benoni> for figuring out the dates. The game scores are updated with modern dates (Gregorian calendar). However, the match was played in Rostov-on-Don when Russia still used the Julian calendar. The Julian dates and the day of the week are given in the original collection. A close match that had Schiffers leading 4 games to 3. Steinitz won three of the last four games to win the match 6 games to 4 with one draw.
