Jun-01-08  Karpova: <Today, he is more or less forgotten, yet the following appeared in his obituary, written by William Wayte, on pages 395-396 of the September 1892 BCM:

‘Mr Slous’ culminating period as a player seems to have been about the years 1835-40, when between the death of [McDonnell] and the rise of Staunton to the championship he shared with George Walker the primacy of English chess. The latter, writing in 1844, says (Preface to Chess Studies, page xi): “Had Mr Slous continued to practise chess, it is highly probable he would have held the ground now occupied by Mr Staunton.”’>

Jun-01-08  sneaky pete: Born 1802. Chairman of the London Stock Exchange. In 1858 he drew against Morphy in a blindfold exhibition the latter gave on April 13 against 8 members of the London Chess Club (game not in this database). He may also have been black in Morphy vs NN, 1858. In a footnoot to that game Sergeant writes: "M(ax) L(ange) gives Morphy's opponent as <S---s>. One is tempted to identify him as F Slous, on whom see page 191n."

In the note on page 191 Sergeant also mentions Walkers opinion and states that "ill health made him give up serious play".
