    1860's Unions of Wilton Baseball Letter. 1860's three-page baseball letter between the Unions of Wilton and the Stars of Camions Station. Wilton boarding school for boys was founded by Augustus Whitlock in 1847. The letter reads:

    "Dear Editor...On behalf of the 'Base Ball Association' of the U.S. please insert the following notice of a game at Wilton. On Saturday last, a match game of 'Base Ball' was played on the grounds adjoining the boarding school of A. Whitlock Esq. at Wilton, between the Stars of Camions Station and the Unions of Wilton which resulted in victory for the Stars by a score of 21 to 15. The playing on both sides was very fine and the game well and closely contested. Mr. Whitlock acted as umpire & his decisions were prompt and correct. They are to play again on Saturday next on the grounds at Camions Station."

    The letter also reports roster and box score, while listing umpire, scorer, and game time.
