“Taken altogether their season at the Opera House was a successful one.  Mr. Condron, the manager, will commence the next season early in August, with a good minstrel band.  During the vacation the house will be brushed up and put in good order, for the next season.  Mr. Henry Burchard closed a four weeks’ engagement last week.  On June 27th he was presented with a magnificent floral basket.”
