“To-morrow night there will be a popular Sunday evening concert, with which the festival will close.”
“NO SUNDAY CONCERT.
The Sunday concert which had been announced for this evening will not be given, owing to the departure of Gilmore’s famous band for Boston at the termination of the concert last evening.”
“It was announced yesterday afternoon that a supplementary concert would be given tonight; but late in the evening we received a telegram from the agent at the ‘Coliseum’ stating that ‘owing to the departure of Gilmore’s Band for Boston the Sunday concert will not be given as announced.’”
“The proposed Sunday concert was abandoned altogether. Bergmann, Zerrahn, and Maretzek all withdrew before the last day, and at the close, to quote the language used on another occasion by Mr. James Fisk, jr. [sic], ‘it was every man drag out his own corpse.”
