Bluff City Club Meeting, 1867

From the November 2, 1867 issue of the Memphis Public Ledger:

“All the members of the Bluff City Base Ball Club are earnestly requested to meet at their club room, No. — Main street, on the 3rd inst., at 9:30 a.m. Members in arrears for dues not attending render themselves liable to suspension. By order of the Club.

John D. Gramger, Pres’t.

A.G. Knapp, Sec’y.”

No mention of what happened to members in arrears who did attend the meeting. Perhaps peer pressure and public humiliation were sufficient for them to pay their dues?
