This article from the ‘Era’ of 11 January 1896 reports on the show nearly 25 years after Maskelyne first appeared at the Hall. It is a positive review, welcoming the return of the sketch ‘Will, the Witch, and the Watchman’. David Devant, Mr. R.A. Roberts and Mr. Cramer on the orchestraphone also receive good reviews.
