The Chess Player's Chronicle
Staunton's magazine features a long poem in French celebrating Bourdonnais vs. McDonnell, entitled Une Revanche de Waterloo, depicting McDonnell descending, like Rob Roy, from the mountains of Scotland to do battle with the French hero. It seems a shame to spoil this romantic vision by pointing out that McDonnell came from Belfast. Many of the names of the players are curiously half blanked out (presumably mid-Victorian gentlemen were chary about having their full names bandied about in anything so vulgar as a chess magazine). Connoisseurs of weird openings might like to look at the analysis of the Schwarz defence 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e4 f5!? - which had been published in Le Palamede the previous year.
