Review: New York Herald, 08 January 1868, 7.

“Kelly & Leon’s Minstrels.—Rarely has a better selected minstrel company been assembled together than we find at this cosey little establishment. ‘New Year’s Calls,’ ‘The Enchantress,’ Rollin Howard and George Christy are the chief attractions there this week.”
