Short review.  “There is no place of entertainment of its kind in the city so cool and comfortable as Wood’s Minstrel Hall, and to this fact, as well as to the excellent management of Mr. Wood, we attribute the good attendance there every night.  The performance is just the kind the people want in this sultry weather.  There is always plenty to laugh at and plenty to amuse.  The bill of last week is so good that is has not changed.”

Fair patronage last week.  “Mr. Tom Vaughn, an old corkite, but who for the past three years has been doing his country good service in the army, appears . . .with his funniments and banjo playing.”
