 “This evening, the Chinese Pantomime of KIM-KA. After which, the laughable pantomime of THE GOLDEN EGG. M. Deneir [sic] and all Company will appear.”
Review: New York Clipper, 18 October 1862, 215.

“On the 7th, there was a ‘hiatus deflendus’ of thirty-eight minutes between the two pieces played on the what’d’ye-call-um of music, and the audience went away, after a tune or two from the pagoda, in bad humor.  On the 8th, the place seemed left to the poor darkies who ‘wait’ for custom. Thus endeth the Cremorne monkey institution for 1862.”
