May-25-04  poktirity: Blind simul, impressing.
Jan-14-05  patzer2: White's demolition of pawn structure move 20. Bxf7! leads to a winning King pursuit.
Mar-19-23  stone free or die: Harding, in his Blackburne book (note 25 p554), notes that both the <ISDN 1898-01-10> and <Morning Post 1898-01-24> don't report the results of the 6th game, nor the date.

(Does either journal supply the game scores for any of the other 5 games?)

Harding thinks it was likely from the middle of the month, so let's say 1898-01.

Harding goes on to say the source, <Graham G-389>, misidentified the date as 1897.

I found a source giving the date as 1898 (but with Black as Collius), with just 20 moves - White announcing M6 after 20...Kxf7.
