Notes.

(a) This move constitutes Mr. Fraser's attack. (See CHESS PLAYER'S CHRONICLE, May, 1860.)

(b) The proper move would have been "B. to K. Kt. fifth"; the move in the text gives White an overwhelming attack.

(c) This move comes now too late.

Games played at the PHILIDORIAN, between Mr. ROBEY and Herr HARRWITZ, the latter giving the odds of Pawn and two moves.

(a) Having already a very cramped game, we should have preferred taking the R. P., forcing White, either to give up the exchange, or keeping his Rooks out of Black's game.
