“Wood’s, Bryants’, Christy’s and Hooley’s at Brooklyn we need scarcely notice, as they are nightly crowded to excess. People are turned away from these places of amusement night after night, and yet they persevere in their determined efforts to enjoy the fun. The minstrels could not be more successful.”
