“For those who are fond of negro wit, funny jokes and unexceptional dancing, the entertainment of Messrs. Kelly and Leon last evening, was just the thing. The overture and operatic chorus were excellent, the solos by Messrs. G. W. Jackson, George Christy, Edwin Kelly and John Allen, good—as usual.”
"The addition of Nelse Seymour to the forces of Kelly and Leon has proved a very valuable one for he was received with the heartiest kind of demonstration on his opening night, which was kept up throughout the week. He takes part in the olio business, and his acts take hugely with the patrons."
