Translation by Asta McCarthy:

The day before yesterday, the monstrosity introduced here by an English speculator and known as Miss Pastrana appeared as the wrong Pepita in the piece 'The Cured Meier', written by Mr. Jacobson. We already discussed the inappropriateness of such a performance of this unfortunate person. The performance was to be repeated yesterday. Soon though the not very numerous audience heard rumors that the performance on stage by the monstrosity was cancelled by the police. It is allowed, though, to show the oddity of nature separately to the public. This will happen on a platform in the Cork Room behind the third hall and did take place yesterday during the performance and in the intermissions.
