  zanzibar: Congdon, speaking at a dinner(?) about his fellow players, has this to say about the above:

<Some gentleman suggested a while ago that, since I had done so little playing, I would have to do all the talking. In passing the knights in review I will not begin at the top, but will climb up. I have in front of me, gentlemen, one of those typical, solid Germans, that never know when they are beaten, and the more they are whipped the harder they fight; and I will say this, that the champion of this tournament— be he whom he may— can not be said to have done so well in its lists as my friend, Mr. Cohnfeld. (Laughter and cheers.)>
