Document Description
TitleThe Record (January 1898)
PublisherJacob Nichols
Place of PublicationSt. John's
DescriptionContains articles on and results for various sporting events of the 1870-90s. "Our object in placing this publication before the public is simply to encourage and stimulate sports and sporting in Newfoundland; to provide clubs and athletes with a record of the principal events in our athletic world, and to see that those who excel, or display merit in any particular game or recreation justly receive the recognition their success deserves... We wish to see Newfoundland sports and Newfoundland athletes taking their proper place among those of other provinces and cities of British North America... with the introduction of cycling, golf and baseball, and increased enthusiasm in cricket and football, particularly in the latter, Newfoundland sports of all kinds are rapidly gaining in popularity and excellence. Nothing helps so much to make a manly man noble, good and true as manly sports and exercises." (p. 1)
