Review: New York Herald, 11 June 1865, 4.

      “The Saturday afternoon concerts at the Park are now regularly inaugurated, under the famous Dodworth management.  The million can, therefore, enjoy most elegant music, open air opera and afternoon ‘germans’ [sic] . . . and it must be said that the million, as well as the fashion, of the metropolis avails itself very numerously of the pleasure.”
