WILKES' SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, New York, NY, February 22, 1862.

* Billiards

This newspaper, which was primarily a sporting newspaper, has a quite lengthy article headed: "Billiards".  Accompanying subheads include:  "Kavanagh and Deery", "Billiard Entertainment", and much more.

Another article found within this issue and entitled: "Our Chess Department" includes a "problem of the week" and the answer to the previous weeks' problem.

This 16 page issue also includes some Civil War reports as well as other sports items, including boxing. Although this issue is in nice condition, some small spots of purple ink staining can be found on the front page.
