Contribution to SA theatre
North Lincoln Sphinx critique: "Miss Pauline Davies, having already earned so many laurels (bouquets are scarce at the Cape), needs no further praise, but our astonishment was great, we must confess, when we recognised the pseudo prima donna singing a capital song amongst the Ethiopian Serenaders."
(North Lincoln Sphinx Vol. 1, No 6. Grahamstown, April 25, 1861. Page 75.)
