N:

In July 1866 (printed in the August issue) the closing date for the tournament was postponed, due to 'the distressing political events' (presumably the Austro-Prussian war of 1866). If a new closing date was decided, it would be announced at least a month before.

In September 1866 (printed in the October issue) the new closing date was set to 1866-10-20.

A partial report for sections A, B and C was printed in the Feb./Mar., 1867 issue. As no chess studies at all had been received for section D, a new closing date was set to 1867-05-31, and at the same time, competitors were allowed to send multiple entries. No further information has been found about the outcome of this section of the tourney, and it not known if it was finished.
