Untitled Article [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 1 January 1869

MR. JOHN HAKT : The entertainment given by this gentleman on Saturday evening last, in Fulton Hall, was in every respect a triumphant one, and honored by a very large, intelligent and appreciative audience. As a reader Mr. H. has but few equals, and we are almost tempted to say, no superiors, in the eountry. His interview between Hamlet and his father' s ghost, was executed by him—personating both characters—with wonderful success. His recitation of " Hamlet's solilo-<iuy on Death," and his reading of "Hans Hreitman's Party," werealaoin overy respect successful—the latter provoking constant roaring laughter by the audience. As a reader, Mr. Hart is no imitator of Murdoch or any other individual; but, he appears just what he is, the only original, genuine Mr. John Hart himself, and destined, before long to make his mark elHewhere than at home. And when wo bear in mind that an artist, no matter how perfect and meritorious, is seldom appreciated at home, his very gratifying su...

If yu play there yu will often hold a hand that will astonish yu, quite oft'n 4 queens and a 10 spot, which'will inflame yu to bet 7 or S dollars that it is a good hand to play poker with; but yu will be more astonished when yu see the other fellah's hand, which invariably consists of 4 kings and a 1 spot.
