Review: New York Herald, 02 June 1863, 4.
“Besides ‘The Duke’s Motto’ at Niblo’s, we had another version of the same piece, called ‘The Duke’s Signal,’ at the New Bowery theatre; a third version, called ‘The Duke’s Device,’ at the Old Bowery theatre, and a burlesque, entitled ‘I Am Here,’ at the immortal and inimitable Bryants’ Minstrels.”
