“Niblo’s Garden during the past week was one of those places of amusement in the city that had a crowded house every night. Ice, snow and thaw prevailed against most of the theatres; but in the case of Niblo’s and its ‘White Fawn’ and graceful forms, beauty asserted her proverbial sway, and mankind succumbed to the delight of the management and the advantage of their cash box."

Review: New York Clipper, 22 February 1868, 366.

“‘The White Fawn’ is drawing very good houses to Niblo’s Garden each evening and on Saturday afternoon. Lizzie Witmore, who has been off the boards for some time, reappeared the past week and was heartily received in the character of Finetta, which has been played by Mrs. Mark Smith.”
