Announcement: New York Herald, 02 February 1863.
“The minstrel halls have, one and all, been crowded this week. Bryant’s . . . prove inevitable attractions to those who enjoy a good laugh. The weather seems to have no effect upon the audiences of our negro minstrel halls; in fact, they are full to overflowing each night, let the weather be what it may.”
