Announcement: New York Herald, 29 December 1865.

     “An excellent addition has been made to the company in the person of N. W. Gould, the guitarist, who is received with great favor every night. The inimitable George has in hand a great many extra attractions for the holiday season, not the least of which are the popular burlesque of the Black Statue and the Scenes at the Opera.”
