“The most beautiful song we have ever listened to, with but very few exceptions is the one entitled ‘Brother’s Fainting at the Door,’ by Mr. P. B. Isaacs of Wood’s Minstrels, and sung every night this week at their popular hall by that popular balladist, D.S. Wambold.”

“[E]xcellent and uniform houses . . . each evening . . . ‘The Ghost of Uncle Tom,’ with Frank Brower as the spectre, continues to afforded a great deal of amusement for the auditors.  Matinees continue to be given every Saturday, and always attract a large attendance of ladies and children.”
