I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: CycloneGU
The London International Chess Congress in 1899 featured 15 of the greatest chess players playing at the turn of the century. Except where noted, the following annotations are taken directly from the Book of the London International Chess Congress and translated to algebraic notation. In the book, this Round 1 matchup was game #95 on pages 175-6. The book is in the public domain and contents may be freely used.
The French Defence relies on a Bishop on the f1-a6 diagonal due to the center movement. White's wasted movement on the Kingside (10. Bh3, 14. Bg2, 17. Bf1) gave Black an opportunity to form an attack and White was ill prepared to meet it.
