Meynell and Gunn’s Company in Australia, 1908, in Miss Hook of Holland and The Belle of Mayfair with Ruth Lincoln, Edwin Brett, Gracie Sinclair, et al
‘Sydney, NSW, Australia, July 7 [1908]. – In The Belle of Mayfair, Meynell and Gunn’s company, at the Melbourne Royal, is repeating the success scored in Miss Hook of Holland. Gracie Sinclair came out from England for the part of the Belle and warrants her importation. Ruth Lincoln, Helene Ross and Will Cromwell all come in for praise from the Melbourne critics. The Gibson Girl Sextette appears to be a special attraction in this comedy.’
(The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 22 August 1908, p.7b)

‘Sydney, N.S. Wales, Australia, Aug. 4 [1908]. – Meynell and Gunn’s musical comedy has scored no uncertain success at the Criterion with Miss Hook of Holland. The company is to be warmly praised for a production perfect in every detail. Ruth Lincoln (Sally Hook), Edwin Brett (Mr. Hook), William Cromwell (Simon Slinks), and Roland Bottomley are all due for special mention.’
(The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 12 September 1908, p.5d)
