Burns, (Little) Ella

A charitable concert (we know not how our religious friends could get along without “concert”) was given at Brother Beecher’s church in Brooklyn, on February 28th.  Carl Bergmen was conductor, with the Philharmonic Society of Brooklyn.  Miss Hadly did the soprano solos, and Mr. Millard the tenor.  Little Ella Burns was the reader and Mr. Joseph Noll the leader. The tickets were $1, and the proceed is for the benefit of the Orphan Asylum and the Graham Old Ladies’ Home.  As long as our religious brethren do nothing worse than this, they are not only welcome to the word “concert,” but we will undertake to give them absolution once a week.
