Review: New York Herald, 24 November 1864.
Very brief review.  “Martha was given last night to a very fair audience with the same cast as heretofore, and was enjoyed with the usual pleasure which Flotow’s light and captivating production insures.”

Review: New-York Times, 24 November 1864, 5.
“A pleasant and effective performance of ‘Martha’ was given here last evening.  The house was unusually fashionable, and the good folk were well satisfied.  Miss Kellogg sang admirably.  She is heard to peculiar advantage in this opera.”
