Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Charles Jerome and his lady are 'both dusky coloured coons, and give a coon scene' of song and dance called "Letty", which is evidently a pun on the fact of the cottage being "to let". Nat Watkins sings "I am the Earl of the Thames Embankment"; and "The Bloomsbury Burglary" by Lew Lake and Co. is full of absurdity, and gives the company scope for a lot of comic acting, of which they take full advantage
