“The house was well filled, and throughout the week business was pretty good, although the theatre was not crowded any evening.  The performance passed off very well, and all present seemed to be well pleased with the entertainment offered. . . . Augusta Walby came next in a dance, followed by Emma Fowler in an eccentric song, who in turn was succeeded by Parkhurst and Stuart in a double clog dance; Billy Pastor then opened his budget of comic songs.  Billy was well received, and made a favorable impression. . . . Fanny Forrest pleasingly sang several ballads.  Fanny is an old favorite in the Music Hall business.  Over ten years ago we first saw Fanny in Thomeni’s Varieties, South Seventh street, below Market, Philadelphia.  Then the Music Hall business was in its infancy, and Fanny was the brightest particular star in the business.  She was then young and fresh, and her singing was hailed with delight every night.  She is now rather passé, but is still equal to a majority of vocalists in the business.  A. M. Hernandez met with a good reception; he performed on the guitar as we have seldom heard.  He is a most versatile performer. . . . Emma Fowler sang several comic songs, and made a good impression upon her auditors. . . . Taken altogether, Mr. Lingard has done well during his opening week.  Business all over town has been on the decline for the past two weeks, and his houses have been good.”
