Sir: I wonder if anyone knows anything about the game

of Ball-Ball? I have a book, published by the British Ball-Ball Association in 1926 and written by C. F. Hewitt, entitled The History of the Game of Ball-Ball. The game is quite intriguing, and I would be pleased for any information on the subject. •
