Apr-20-16  zanzibar: The ending note from the TB p305/370:

<This was the first game in the Tournament won by Mr. Mortimer, whose play throughout affords a marked contrast to the feebleness of many of his earlier games. In justice to Mr. Skipworth, it must be remembered that he played in direct defiance of his doctor's advice, and any falling off on his part must be attributed to the state of his health at the time incapacitating him for hard Chess.>

It seems Skipworth withdrew soon after completing the first round.
