Review: New York Herald, 10 May 1870, 7.

No mention of music. “…Since Tammany has been reopened there is a noticeable change for the better in the class of entertainment furnished and also in the patronage bestowed by the public on the exertions of the managers. Their efforts to please have, in a great measure, been rewarded, and the establishment now bids fair to occupy a position which it did not formerly enjoy.”

Review: New York Clipper, 21 May 1870, 54.

Large paragraph. “…Jenny Engle, one of the best vocalists in the variety business, has a great selection of songs; she makes a good appearance, and understands how to please her auditors. She was encored from four to five times each evening the past week. Billy Athcroft does ‘My Father Sould [sic] Charcoal’ in clever style.”
