“COOLEST AND BEST VENTILATED PLACE of amusement in the City. This establishment will reopen THURSDAY, June 17. The Manager takes pleasure in announcing an engagement, for a limited period, with Elise Holt and her new troupe, who will appear in the burlesque of Paris; or, the Judgement. First appearance in this City of the charming actress Miss L.H. Weathersbee, from the London theatres, who will assume the role of Mercury. The Rigl Sisters, Betty and Emily, every night. Particulars in future.”
“Miss Weathersby, who arrived in this country from England a few weeks ago under engagement to the Elise Holt Troupe, and who appeared with them in Philadelphia, is announced to appear at two theatres in this city this week. First, she is announced under engagement to the Lydia Thompson Troupe, to appear as Hafiz in ‘Sinbad the Sailor,’ lately played by Maggie Desmond, and to open with Elise Holt at the Waverly as Mercury in ‘Paris.’ There appears to be a demand for the lady.”
Mostly a summation of where the Elise Holt Troupe plans to travel next. No mention of music.
"The cast opened “the burlesque of ‘Paris,’ which was preceded by a farce each evening. The attendance was fair. Had Miss Dickson been in proper form to have played her part, she would no doubt have done much better than she did as Jenny Leatherlungs and in the burlesque. Belle Hewitt sang ‘Lo! Hear the Gentle Lark’ exceedingly well, and deserved an encore.”
