[what is this?]

"Travailleur infatigable, constamment hérissé de notes, de revues, de journaux scientiliques, s'avance assez gravement au milieu de nous un tout jeune homme, M. Ladislas Maczuski. En quelques mois il a fait d'immenses progrès et joue maintenant à but avec des adversaires dont il recevait la Tour. Un de ses grands mérites est de posséder cette modestie si rare dans les amateurs qui se sentent en progrès. Il ne provoque pas, mais accepte toute partie. Enfant du nord. Polonais d'origine, il a les qualités qui caractérisent les organisations boréales, la patience, la persévérance, l'énergie et la volonté. Il veut arriver, il doit arriver. D'après nos habitudes françaises, nous pourrions lui reprocher, peut-être, un peu trop de lenteur et de' sévérité." Paul Journoud in Nouvelle Régence, Volume 1, 1860, page 100.

Mar-28-06  aragorn69: As for the exact moves (Black was mated at move 16 or did he give up at move 15), I don't know. gives the 15 move version... but since it errouneously spells White as "Linden", I would not bet on its trustworthiness.

<"An indefatigable worker, constantly bristling with notes, journals, and scientific journals, advances quite seriously in the midst of us a very young man, Mr. Ladislas Maczuski. With one of his great merits, is that he possesses the modesty so rare in those who feel he is in progress, he does not provoke, but accepts every part. Has the qualities that characterize the boreal organizations, patience, perseverance, energy and willpower.He wants to arrive, he has to arrive.From our French habits, we might reproach him, perhaps, a little too much Slowness and severity. " Paul Journoud in New Regency, Volume 1, 1860, p. 100.>

French is one language G does fairly well.
