Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 02 February 1863, 3.
“The scenery of Niblo’s is unquestionably the best extant, and in the drama of ‘Leah,’ is equal to any requirement. . . . [It] contributes a good share of the vast success with which the play has met. ‘Leah’ will not only run through the regular engagement of Miss Bateman, but will probably be continued during a part of the time which had previously been assigned to other attractions.”
