Review: New York Herald, 29 November 1866, 5.

“The entertainments at this highly popular place of amusement continue to be of an exceedingly agreeable character. Last evening the bill was varied and attractive, and the acting and singing all that could be desired. The attendance was full, and the actors received well merited approbation from all parts of the house. The concluding piece was The Female Clerks of Washington, which professes to describe some incidents in the civil war.”
