“At Mechanics’ Hall last evening a large and enthusiastic audience assembled to witness the varied and pleasing entertainment offered by Charley White’s excellent troupe. Burlettas, songs and dances of no mean order filled the programme, which was concluded by the well known protean piece The Victim, in which Josh Hart, as Jerry Clip, and Miss Laura LeClair, as the mischief-loving Jane appeared to good advantage.”
