The Chess Player's Chronicle
"The Staunton-St.Amant recriminations rumble on into another year, and there is some mock Dickensian writing from Captain Kennedy. Here is an amusing article on ""the game at chess by telegraph"" in 1845 between Staunton and Kennedy in Gosport and a group of players at the London Vauxhall railway terminus. The Gosport allies missed the last train home because of the delay caused by the telegrapher re-transmitting the moves to people following the game in Southampton. Though not the first game by telegraph, this could have been the earliest instance of the phenomenon known to internet chess players as ""lag""." (EUR 29.00)
