  MissScarlett: Skinner & Verhoeven give the date of this simul (+26 =11) as August 18th (the same day as Alekhine vs A West, 1923), but <The Falkirk Herald>, August 29th, has:

<On Saturday evening, 25th August, A. Alekhine played 37 games simultaneously. winning 26 and drawing 11 in four hours. This cannot be considered a good result for a player of his class. It was noticed in this performance that Alekhine made every move with his left hand.>

Skinner & Verhoeven's source for this game is the <Glasgow Herald> of September 29th, but I don't know if it's also the basis for dating the simul.
