'The following game probably occurred more than once in Bird's career. Bird included it in his column in the Sheffield and Rotherham Independent of 2 December 1882, stating that the game was played on 12 October 1881 against C. Sfander. In Modern Chess (p. 12), Black's name is given as C. Kauder, with 1882 as year in which the game was played. Finally, in a biographical article on Bird that appeared in the March 1889 edition of Chess Monthly (p. 206), the player behind the Black pieces was named C. Pfander.'
