[what is this?]

Problem composer and medical Doctor Isaac Ryall was the Canadian Chess Association's 1st secretary in 1872 and he organized a correspondence tournament in his home town of Hamilton, Ontario between 1880-2. He was noted as a manager of other tournaments as well, and in 1884, the chess club correspondence went to 71 Main Street East.

Interestingly, in the Montreal Gazette (1836)

Also demonstrates a club existed in Montreal before 1844, recognized by CCF official history. Research by ljfyffe.
