Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Sisters Danieff, one of whom is a 'mammoth lady acrobat' are a fund of amusement. George Fuller Golden had been part of a team known as Ryland and Golden. He acts as well as narrates his stories, and differs from other patter comics in that he tells different stories with each visit. It is said that the king found him most amusing at Cowes.
