What the Press Says:
We can’t ea^much about Miss Nettie Jackson for laughing. She
is a show in herself. If anybody can beat her telling stories, ttiev’d
better tell them before a Marietta audience or no one will believe it.
She simply captivated the audieuce.—Marietta (Pa.) Times.
The imporsonattons of Miss Jackson, who captivated Lancaster
last year, were much enjoyed. She is particularly fine in her child
impersonations, and her “Money Musk" was a taking and unique
rendering.—Lancaster <N. H.) Gazette.
Miss Jackson completely captivated the audience, and was called
back again and again.—Covington, Ind.
