"The six following games were recently played at the St. George's Chess Club, Cavendish Square, by M. St. Amant, one of the finest players of France, and Mr. Staunton. From their limited number, and the circumstances under which they were played,—M. St. Amant being in London upon business which demanded his chief attention, and his adversary having entered the Chess arena for the first time after severe indisposition,—these games afford nothing like a test of the relative skill of the two players; and, although more laboured, are certainly much inferior to the average of those between Messrs. Cochrane and Staunton, which from time to time have appeared in this Magazine.
The present games, however, derive an interest from being the first ever played between M. St. Amant and Mr. Staunton, and may be looked upon as the prelude to a more important and satisfactory contest, since we learn that Mr. Staunton has offered to play a match of 21 or 41 games with M. St. Amant, or any other player now in the field, for fifty or one hundred guineas a side." (1)
