Harrwitz - Horwitz (1849)
Compiled by MissScarlett
--*--

Match played in Brighton during February-March 1849, the winner being the first to seven games, draws not counting. All games were given in the <Chess Player's Chronicle>, Staunton having the advantage of - coincidentally? - being in town, where he was due to be married on February 23rd. His whereabouts during the honeymoon are unconfirmed. The Brighton Gazette stated that the terms of the match called for at least one game to be played every day, except Sunday, but the dates of the games give in the <CPC> suggest they only played Monday-Friday, unless Saturday was reserved to complete any unfinished games.

The <CPC> didn't date the last two games, but the daily schedule implies they would have occurred on March 8th & 9th, which is corroborated by a Gazette report:

The chess match between Messrs. Harrwitz and Horwitz, after a hard struggle, terminated on Friday last in favour of Mr. Harrwitz, the score at the end of the contest standing thus:- Harrwitz, 7; Horwitz, 6, drawn, 2.
