     “Mr. J. R. Thomas, the well known composer, whose songs are in everyone’s ears, gave his annual concert at Irving Hall, on Thursday evening, assisted by a large number of our best resident artists. The programme was alike remarkable for length and variety, and the audience indicated its satisfaction with it by encoring almost every piece.”
