“TONY PASTOR’S OPERA HOUSE.—William M. Reese made his third appearance in New York [???] at this popular and favorite place of amusement last evening. The house was crowded, the performances varied and excellent as usual, and every one went home delighted. With his play and fun every evening Tony Pastor is likely to become a great dramatic physician, keeping the public in spirits and health.”

Announcement: New York Clipper, 25 November 1865, 262.

“Several new faces put in an appearance this evening, Nov. 20th, at Tony Pastor’s Opera House, among whom are Martini Cairiski [sic], the wire performer, and W.M. Reeve, versatile comedian.  The daring and accomplished Marietta Zanfretta remains, also Blanche Stanley, Willis Armstrong, the veritable Tony, and many others.”
