Mr. Hall responded to Mr. Eiffe's attack with the French defence, which gave him a strong position, which Mr. Eiffe was unable to break up. The game was virtually over before the luncheon-hour, but Mr. Eiffe, who has been at the disadvantage of very little practice, played the game until the fifty-first move, when he resigned after 3 hours 46 minutes' play.>
