Bryants’ Minstrels’ fun entertainments are very popular.
“Are your thoughts by day and dreams by night all about the Nigger? Then go to Bryant’s Minstrels. They will give peace to your troubled mind; relieve you of pain; and make you forget the cares and perplexities of life, and fit you to enjoy life and 15 cent stews. You try it.”
“Bryants’ Minstrels continue to warble their dulcet melodies at their popular Minstrel Hall. The company presents quite a budget of new features and novelties every week. . . . [T]he ‘Bourbon Arabs’ [is] a capital burlesque on the Hash Eaters at Nixon’s Alhambra.”
