Oct-13-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Lovely old-times attack.
Nov-15-06  Quintiliano: Is this the oldest American chess game on record? Can't we do better than that?
Mar-31-07  gauer: has an entry about a William Perry in Canadian Chess fame.
Feb-08-08  wolfmaster: It also must be understood that this Lewis is not William Lewis.
Jan-26-12  master of defence: Whatīs wrong with 10. Na3? Itīs best than 10. Nxc7 because loses the knight.
Apr-07-12  estrick: It's still before coffee, but I don't quite see why White resigned at this point. Of course, if he plays 22. Kh3, he gets mated. But if he plays 22. f3, the best I can see is Black comes out a piece ahead after 22 ... Nxe3+ 23. Kh1 Nxd1 24. fxe4 Nf2+

Does Black have a forced mate if White plays 22. f3?

  NM JRousselle: If 22 f3 Ne3 23 Kh1 and now the black queen retreats to either e6 or c6 and White is down a lot of groceries.

  offramp: It also might be the oldest Scotch Game in the world. There is a Turk game that might be older but no one knows when it was played.
Oct-29-15  Gottschalk: Name may be wrong, my database records as correspondence played by walt William Lewis. Year and game strenght are compatible to William Lewis
