“Campbell’s Minstrels . . . are meeting with excellent success. The hall has been rearranged, so as to afford visitors a better view of the stage than was possible under the old construction, and is now one of the pleasantest and most comfortable in the city. The performers are among the best of their kind.” K: Business of Music
