  GrahamClayton: Patrick Eiffe (1837-1899)

Quote from his obituary notice in the "Otago Witness", dated 31 August:

"Unfortunately, Mr Eiffe had little book knowledge, and no practice with strong players; but despite this, he proved himself to be no mean antagonist. He was a cautious player, and took few risks. He also wrote poetry and articles for the newspapers, He wrote a clever book called the "Three L's", which had a very fair sale."

  GrahamClayton: A fuller obituary notice from the "Barrier Miner", Wednesday 12 July 1899, page 2:

"By the death of the late Patrick Eiffe, of South Broken Hill, Barrier chess has lost one of the most enthusiastic and good-natured exponents. Mr. Eiffe had entered for the Barrier Club's winter tourney, and visited the club rooms for the last time at the end of May last, when he complained of being unwell. His play was characterised by extreme cautiousness, and he seldom moved a piece without a careful analysis of the probable result. Although this style had the effect of robbing his play of brilliancy, he could generally be depended on in a match to at least draw his game. Mr. Eiffe many years ago competed in Adelaide for the championship of South Australia, when he had the honor of winning a game from Mr. Charlick. Nor did he confine his abilities exclusively to chess. Mr. Eiffe was the author of a novel published some years ago in Adelaide entitled "Law, Lawyers and Land Jobbers", and which had a fairly extensive sale."
