     “This popular place of entertainment was well filled last evening.  The various dances, ballads, and songs presented for the amusement of the audience were capitally received, and evinced considerable talent on the part of the general company.  Tony Pastor is always on the alert in catering for the numerous friends who patronize his establishment.” Lists performers.

     No mention of music. “The attendance last week at this establishment [Tony Pastor’s Opera House] was good, and the performances were well received.”

     Brief. The house “did a good business last week…‘The Devil’s Brother,’ which was given last week as the afterpiece, passed off very creditably.”
