Announcing the fourth appearance of the Lincoln Thespians on the evening of June 29, 1876, performing Enoch Arden and a vaudeville play entitled The Loan of a Lover. The performance will benefit the library and reading room, and feature a much improved acting troupe: "owing to their increased facilities and some valuable additions in the way of excellent amateur talent, they will present to the citizens of Lincoln a better entertainment than ever before." Admission is fifty cents, reservable at J.H. Harley's Drug Store. The bottom third of the sheet lists the actors for each play with their character roles. A striking broadside, and unrecorded in OCLC. A rare and interesting piece of Western Americana.
