Says the event was on Friday, but ads in the NYT show a different event at the Academy on Friday, so it must be a mistake. “The two elaborate entertainments . . . proved a success of the first order. . . .
Two thousand applicants were refused admittance. . . . The Wood and Bryant Minstrels held forth in song and dance.”
Review: New York Clipper

“[A] great success. It is thought upwards of $5000 was cleared. In the afternoon, Wood’s Minstrels appeared.”
