     “This troupe is well managed and receives the patronage of many of our first class citizens, their wives and children.  The singing of the quartet is beautiful, the fun of the comedians is of the most hilarious character, and the Terpsichorean efforts of the dancers are timely and numerous.”

     “Wood’s Minstrels continue as popular as ever with the public, and are playing to good houses, considering the warm weather.  This week there is an entire change in the programme, and visitors to this Hall of Minstrelsy will find it one of the best ventilated places of amusement in the city.”
