The New York Times



A full house of 7,000 see a delightfully close and entertaining final. The Times wrote "the gallery was unable to restrain its emotion and broke into cheers." This was especially true when the ladies stood up to the barrage directly at them by the men. Kitty hit several winning volleys and Molla brought off angled passing shot winners.
