...his mannerisms, his awkwardness, his semi-languid attitudinizing, and, more than all, his ungainly shape and long hair, were obstacles in the way of admiration, while his utter absence of that essential to all lecturers, humor, put an air brake to anything like applause."
This newspaper also reported the venue as Ralston Hall.
