  Phony Benoni: The score of tis game appeared in the "American Chess Bulletin", July 1912, p. 155. Unfortunately, it was badly garbled from moves 20-26, and quickly became unplayable.

Fortunately, I was able to find a legible version in the "Philadelphia Inquirer", June 23, 1912, and will submit a correction. HEre it is:

[Event "Manhattan CC - Franklin CC"]
[Site "New York, NY USA"]
[Date "1912.05.30"]
[Result "1-0"]
[White "Benjamin Milnes Neill"]
[Black "Otto Roething"]
[ECO "C12"]
[PlyCount "109"]

Jan-13-19  zanzibar: It's a shame we can't easily access the Phil Inquirer archive issues like we can, say, BDE.

Such an important source, the Philadelphia Inquirer, largely in PD, but mostly hidden behind a paywall.

(At least this interface allows searching... though viewing a legible copy isn't allowed. Funny, adding Neill to the search causes it to fail)
