     “The weather was all that could be desired, and the music equally so, as Harvey Dodworth was at his usual post as conductor of the band.  The concert was scarcely as well attended as is usual on such occasions, doubtless owing to the fact that it was not generally known that the music season had really commenced.

     It is but fair to announce that the only railroad companies that have contributed to the expenses of the concert are the Broadway and Seventh avenue line, the Sixth avenue line, the Third avenue line, and the Belt Railroad. The public visiting the Park on concert days should remember this fact.”
