“Miss Kellogg flashes across our path pleasantly to-day on her way to other scenes of triumph. There will, therefore, naturally be a performance at the Academy of Music of ‘Faust,’ in which the lady’s performance is esteemed one of the finest on the stage. She will be supported with the strength of the regular company, and the matinée will undoubtedly be the most brilliant of the season, especially as it is the last.”
