Lists several pieces that are currently being performed, though it’s not absolutely certain they are being performed this week. “It seems to be ‘Wood Up’ all the time at this house. The new acts are all pleasing. . . . Business has been so good during the past week, that but little change has been deemed necessary for the present.”
