Part of announcement for following week’s performances at Tony Pastor’s. “The benefits at this establishment the past week were not all very liberally patronized. Frank Kerns led off with a densely crowded house, followed by T.G. Riggs, who had a fair turn out. John Mulligan did not have a very good house, neither did Collier and Graver; but the house of the week was that on Satudray night when ‘Dody’ Pastor, the treasurer, put forth his cause. Saturday night is always the bset night in the week, which was in his favor.”
