Review: New York Herald, 24 July 1864, 4.
"The concert yesterday was attended by a very large crowd of pedestrians and a fair number of carriages. The Park authorities yesterday extended their conveniences for the supply of refreshments by placing an additional ice cream department under the Terrace. The programme of music was well selected and a new piece by Mr. H.B. Dodworth introduced, entitled the 'Casino Polka." It is a very pretty composition, and will doubtless become as popular as the 'Park March'."
