A Frank J. Marshall curiosity

Under the heading; The thirteenth move was unlucky from Chicago Tribune January 7, 1900 comes this curiosity.

  " The following short game was played during the week at Mr. Lee's home. The first move was made by Sidney P. Johnston, the first move for black was made by Frank J. Marshall. Then James W. Taylor made the second move for white and Harry F. Lee for black. Thereafter each player moved in his regular turn without consultation  with his partner."
