Review: New York Clipper, 06 May 1863, 59.

With image of Zoe. “This very pleasing danseuse is at present filling a highly successful engagement at Laura Keene’s Theatre, with Jane English’s company. Although she has been on the stage but one year, she has already become a great favorite with the public. She has fulfilled very successful engagements with many of our leading concert halls throughout the country, and her services are much sought after. She makes a fine appearance on the stage, dances with considerable grace, and bids fair to become one of the best danseuses in the country. She is a pupil of the well-known ballet-master, Mr. Ben Yates, to whom she is indebted for the perfection which she has acquired in the terpsichorean art.”
