     “It is really astonishing to see the continued rush of visitors to this Minstrel Hall. There seems to be no let up. Not that they are not deserving of it; on the contrary, they give a first class show, and seem to please every one…We have visited them from two to three times a week, ever since they first opened, and we have yet to see a poor house.”
