Review: New York Clipper, 27 April 1867, 21, 3d col., top.

“Raymond Lodge gave a second concert on Saturday evening, at their Lodge Room, 594 Broadway, to a large and fashionable audience. The entertainment consisted of an offertorio No. 3, by Bro. H. G. Ovington, which was loudly encored, song of ‘Beware,’ by Miss Jennie Waeil [Wade]; poem entitled, ‘Little Jim,’ recited by Bro. Samuel W. Fort; the song of ‘Not Married Yet,’ by the charming little Ella Chapman; Brother Cushing sang ‘Heart Bowed Down.’ Mr. Cushing has a deep voice, and his singing was very good; Jennie Wade and Mr. Brahmer, appeared in the duet of ‘Evangeline,’ which was well sung. The gentleman has a rich and melodious voice. The Dobson Brothers gave a banjo solo, with imitations, and were loudly encored. The whole affair was a success, and reflects credit on the efforts of Bro. S. W. E. Beckner, the Master of Raymond Lodge, and J. W. Fort, Junior Warden, who was director of the concert. The entertainment concluded with a duet of Brother Russell and Miss Fannie Northrup.”
