  MissScarlett: The Daily Times (Davenport, Iowa), March 6th 1926, p1:

<Revenge is sweet, even in that grand old game of chess.

H. A. Weld, Rock Island attorney, waited 25 years for a return match with Dr. Emanuel Lasker of Germany, former world's chess champion, and when he got it last night the local man made Dr. Lasker quit after 39 moves. Weld was defeated by Dr. Lasker 25 years ago when the German wizard was touring the United States.

Last night at the Hotel Blackhawk, 32 [sic] chess players from Illinois and Iowa played Dr. Lasker in a simultaneous match. Mr Weld was the only contestant able to defeat the wizard but H. H. Thompson and W. L. Estes of Davenport held him to a draw in 31 moves each.

Dr. Lasker, much to the surprise of old chess players of this vicinity, remembered the faces of some of the players who appeared against him 25 years ago.>

Here's a game from the earlier occasion: Lasker vs E M Sala, 1901
