Review: New York Herald, 20 November 1867, 3.

“Momus also wields the baton, banjo and bones at the Eighth Avenue Opera House. The denizens of the West side settle all family jars with a hearty laugh and throng to this house in search of the provocations of the ‘risibles.’”

A new drama, entitled ‘Patriot’s Daughter,’ is announced for production on the 31st.”
