Israel Zangwill et al. in City of Jersey City - in the beginning of 1899

from W.F. Frame Tells His Own Story, page 117:

From Canada we made our way to Jersey City.  I was engaged, along with Israel Zangwill, the popular author, to entertain at a millionaire’s mansion.  He read “The Jewish Ghetto,” and I followed with songs and sayings of bonnie Scotland in full Highland costume, to the delight of the guests, who numbered seventy.
