Nineteenth Century Fun & Games

"Our major amusements were baseball and football. In the back of a print shop, when I grew older, we had a boxing club. We had no well-organized gymnasiums. Winter sports were skating and hooking a sled behind a horse; the rider, lying flat on his belly, took a fair amount of snow from the horses' hoofs. I remember seeing a tennis court but I do not remember ever seeing anyone play. I had never heard of golf."
