With the headline "Base Ball at Snow Hill ," this report: "The Kinston and Snow Hill clubs crossed bats at Snow Hill last Friday afternoon, although it looked at one time as if no game would be played, as Snow Hill insisted at first on playing more men from Goldsboro than had been agreed upon. The captain of the Snow Hill club wrote our captain that they would play us at Snow Hill Friday, 16th inst., if we would allow them to have Draughan and Hurst of Goldsboro , (claiming Hurst to be visiting in the vicinity for the summer and to be a member of the Snow Hill club,) but also King and Phillips of the Goldsboro club. Our boys were willing to play with the first two players from Goldsboro , but not with the last two, and Snow Hill finally consented to play as per her agreement. The game resulted in a victory for Kinston , the following being the score by innings:"
"The next 10 years, Raleigh will continue to grow, and it's going to grow this way" he said
