Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

This is Chung Ling Soo's possible third visit, and he mystifies the audience with his clever and original conjuring. His trick with ducks and a bowl of water raises the most applause. Martine and son give a lantern-show, and the son sings the tenor line, begging Mr. Conductor not to put him off the train!
