A Professor Robinson of New York sent a letter to the American papers in which he said:

"Miss Norton's voice is a soprano of great range, power, volubility, and of a richness of quality probably not surpassed and scarcely equaled by that of any voice in Europe. It is simply indescribably magnificent. Her acting is good, graceful and natural, and she throws her soul into her singing and acting so thoroughly as at once to captivate every listener. She also dresses richly and in great taste."
