  whiteshark: <vonKrolock> I give up.

I also found a footnote in <Morphy's Games of Chess> that <F.H. Lewis> was born 1834 ind died 1889.

  Phony Benoni: A note in the "Baltimore American" for May 23, 1886, states <"...the distinguished amateur who played (and drew) the first game with Morphy on his arrival in London, Mr. Fred H. Lewis.">

A more recent game of Lewis is given, with his enjoyable notes.
