zanzibar: As <Karpova> sez, plus this:
<We will here remark <en passant> that we have this week received a most delightful visit from Mr. Duffy, the present chess editor of the <London Illustrated News>, as well as the <Westminster Papers>. Mr. Duffy is making a flying visit to the United States, and will return very shortly.>
<Sci Am Suppl v4 (Dec 8, 1877) p1614>
So, he pulled double duty as editor back in 1877.
Please also note, that unlike today, back in 1877 a "flying visit" didn't have the potential of two meanings, but rather, just one.
