Annette Gray et al. in St Mary's, Ontario, Canada - in the beginning of 1899

from W.F. Frame Tells His Own Story, page 103:

Our next place of call was St. Mary’s, near to which there was a Red Indian settlement.  Quite a number of the settlers came to our entertainment in the Opera House, and were a most attentive audience, and seemed to enjoy the Highland pipes and the dancing in kilts.  They were a quiet people, and were decked out in their Indian plumage.  It was a pleasure for us to perform to them.
