Excerpt from Amusements in Chess
The conductors of the Saturday Magazine were pleased to find that their efforts to extend the knowledge of the game of Chess were signally successful. In the four years during which these articles appeared, they were frequently receiving letters on the subject from all parts of the coun try. They were pleased to find that numerous persons made their first acquaintance with Chess through the pages of the Saturday Magazine, while the Chess Problems afforded an agreeable source of amusement to the family circle, and produced many a pleasant and friendly contest as to who should be the first to solve them. The Editor was constantly receiving solutions to these problems from ladies as well as gentlemen; from the families of clergymen; from schools, and from many a solitary Chess student.
