North Lincoln Sphinx: "Miss Marian Ramsay debut was a decided success, for a prettier lassie one would scarce wish to see; her acting was natural and unaffected, and we anticipate a long series of triumphs in this young lady's histrionic career."
(North Lincoln Sphinx, Vol 1, No 6, Grahamstown, April 25, 1861, page 75.)
