Newburgh Daily Journal

1884: November 21

  A Newburgh audience has had the pleasure of spending an evening with "Mark Twain" and George W. Cable. And enjoyed it to the utmost. The Opera House, where the entertainment was given, was only half filled. This may be accounted for by several reasons: Weather -- several other largely attended first class entertainments on preceding evenings this week -- the price of reserved seats -- another reading in town the same evening -- the night on which several church organizations hold weekly service, etc. But the gathering was select and appreciative.
