“Another band of minstrels has been organized in this city, under the management of Mr. M.C. Campbell, who has had as much experience in the business as the best of those now engaged in it. . . . There is a very large population around the Palace of Music, and with a first class company, Mr. Campbell ought to succeed in gathering them in.”
