The 1876 Brown Stockings: A Little Exhibition Game

By Telegraph.

Elizabeth, N.J., May 24.-St. Louis 6; Resolutes, 3.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, May 25, 1876

I missed the notice for this game and had to go back and find it. I'll look around and see if I can find anything else about the game but no promises.

Update: I found a bit more in the May 25, 1876 Brooklyn Daily Eagle:

Several games were played yesterday, May 24, worthy of note. At Elizabeth, the St. Louis nine had work to do to whip the Resolutes of that town, by 6 to 3. The score stood at 2 to 1 only at the close of the sixth inning. The same nine played as that which defeated the Mutuals 12 to 3, except that Dick Pearce played in McGeary's place at second base, Dick putting out six players there.
