White's next move is unclear in "American Chess Bulletin" (August 1913, p. 172) and "Brooklyn Daily Eagle" (July 3, 1913); either source could be either 29.P-B3 or 20.P-R3. Gillam's tournament book (p. 36) has 29.h3. However, the "New York Tribune (July 6, 1913) seems to clearly have 29.P-B3 (29.f3).

I think the Tribune is correct, and that 29.f3 was played. It provides a more useful outlet for White's king while gaining a tempo on th bishop (though, admittedly, Black was probably going to play 29...Bd5 anyway).
