“‘The Buffalo Gals’ of come-out-tonight fame are well-remembered by almost everybody, and it was not until very recently that we were permitted to learn anything about the ‘Buffalo Boys,’ but they can now be seen and heard, too, in all their terpsichorean and cloggistic excellence at Bryant’s Minstrels, where they are presently engaged.”
