“The building was densely crowded; 200 children of the Mission were present, and sang with beautiful effect several simple melodies.  Grafulla’s Band was in attendance.”

Grafulal’s [sic] Seventh Regiment Band was in attendance.  Two hundred children of the institution were present, seated on an elevated platform at the rear of the stage, so that upon the rising of the green curtain an exceedingly beautiful effect was produced.”
