Review: New York Herald, 08 November 1862, 5.
“Twenty-one musical entertainments have been given in the Central Park during the season ending last Saturday. These have been uniformly well attended, while on last Saturday over fifty thousand people availed themselves of the occasion to be present. The largest number of carriages, over five thousand, ever reported as entering the Park in one day, with their inmates, added to the attraction of the scene, while the happy combination of simple popular airs, with the more scientific classical music, gave an opportunity for enjoyment to all, unmarred by the slightest disorder.”
