  MissScarlett: Morning Chronicle, June 27th 1855, p.5:

<Mr. O'Sullivan, the United States Minister at Lisbon, who is said to be one of the best chess-players in America, played, during his late stay in Paris, 27 games, without odds, with M. Saint Amant, the well-known French player. Of the 27, M. Saint Amant won 21, Mr. O'Sullivan 3, and 3 were drawn.>

  MissScarlett: <John Louis O'Sullivan (November 15, 1813 – March 24, 1895) was an American columnist and editor who used the term "manifest destiny" in 1845 to promote the annexation of Texas and the Oregon Country to the United States. O'Sullivan was an influential political writer and advocate for the Democratic Party at that time and served as US Minister to Portugal during the administration of President Franklin Pierce (1853–1857), but he largely faded from prominence soon thereafter. In the twentieth century the phrase "manifest destiny" was traced back to him.>
