Excerpt from Bridge Abridged: Or Practical Bridge

Had anyone been bold enough, some seven years ago, to propound the idea that, by the end of the nineteenth century, the game of Whist would have become a dead letter at the leading London Clubs, his remarks would have been treated as the wanderings of a harmless lunatic. Yet so it has proved.

One afternoon, in the autumn of 1894, Lord Brougham was in the Portland Club, and before starting the usual rubber of Whist he showed the game of Bridge to three or four men who were there. The result was almost magical. They started playing it at once, and as other members dropped in they nearly all fell in love with the new game at first sight; and in a' few weeks it was the standard game at the one club which had been always considered the greatest strong hold of Whist.
