I'm not proud.  I did an amazing long browse, using the images at the
Penn library's Furness collection:

PagePosition=1  No regrets.

R. A. Cantrell asks who among us has read Hall's Chronicles from cover
to cover. I cannot say I have done that, but I have gleaned many hours
of enjoyment from his more famous books, "A Short Treatise on the Game
of Whist" and "Standard Games".

"When in doubt, win the trick".

R.A. Cantrell asks if "anyone on the list [can] claim to have read
Hall's Chronicle...cover to cover" because it is "[i]mportant statistic"
(at least to him).

May I ask why it's important statistic and what the result can tell us?

Best wishes,
Takashi Kozuka
