Review: New-York Times, 28 September 1868, 7.

“The concerts in the Central Park Garden have been interfered with by the Equinoctial weather, but in the worst of weather the attendance is always fashionable. Mr. Thomas’ programmes are varied and eclectic. There is something for everybody. The orchestra cannot be surpassed.”
