“Bryant’s continue their prosperous career. We are inclined to doubt whether such constant patronage was ever before bestowed upon any place of entertainment in the city. Every night numbers of persons are turned away from their overcrowded hall. They merit their success, if only from their varied and pleasing programme.”
