Review: New York Post, 07 February 1863, 2.
“Bateman has awakened no ordinary enthusiasm in the new play, ‘Leah,’ even in this theatre going community. Houses crowded every night with auditors too deeply interested to resort to ‘thunders of applause,’ as the play bills have it, are not the only proof of the furore she has created.”
