Middlesex vs. Kent match

On the 11th inst., in the rooms of the City of London Chess Club, a match over 16 boards took place between teams from Middlesex and Kent, and resulted in a close victory by the score of 9 to 7 for the former side.  We present a game from the event, in which Mr. du Mont fights manfully for more than 30 moves after losing the exchange, only to stumble at the end when the goal was at last in sight: it seems that 51...Kb4 would have drawn.
