The audience enjoyed every minute of the time occupied, whether pathetic, humorous or whatever its character, every rendition was a happy delight. The press notices which preceded him have been no exaggeration of his great power to entertain. Tho audiences, not as if under the spoil of a magician; if he wanted stillness, the silence wan profound; if tears, they flowed freely; if smiles, everyone looked pleasant; it uproarious laughter, everyone went wild."
