“It is one of John Poule’s emanations, and will, therefore, be good, as have been all of his burlesques.”

Review: New York Clipper, 07 March 1868, 382.

“The ‘Wite’ Fawn,’ a musical burlesque on the spectacle now being performed at Niblo’s, is the title of the latest production at Tony Pastor’s Opera House. It is one of John F. Poole’s emanations. . . . The burlesque is replete with songs set to popular airs of the day, and is throughout written in a lively vein.”
