Review: New-York Times, 17 February 1868, 4.

“The New York Theatre and the Worrell Sisters have attracted fine houses to see ‘The Streets of New York,’ which was revived last week for the first time in two years. . . . Miss Irene appears in the sympathetic role of Miss Firweather, and is very effective.  The management of the stage is excellent.”
