Translation by Asta McCarthy:

One of these many farce kings was Eduard Jacobson, born on Nov. 10, 1833, in Gross Strehlitz in Upper Silesia as the son of a rabbi, and deceased on Jan. 29,1897, in Berlin. During 40 years of writing, partly on his own, partly in cooperation with O.F.Berg, O. Girndt, G. von Moser, Julius Rosen, Rudolf Kneisel, and others, he wrote quite a number of one-act song comedies, far more than 100. Most of them crossed all German stages and still today are largely maintaining their place among the repertoires. Among the farces are 'Singvögelchen'......[list of creative works]

Already i 1886, Jacobson celebrated the anniversary of his 100th piece for the stage 'An Established Man'. On the occasion of this event, the 'Neue Allgemeine Zeitung' ( the New General Newspaper) wrote very fittingly:
"Only who knows the theater well is capable of judging what an enormous amount of work, diligence, and inventiveness is collected in hundred of such works. Just as not all children turn out perfect, so Jacobson among the products of his mind has some pieces of fruit to show that, despite all the love with which his paternal care equipped them, could not reach favor with the audience and could only carry on their missed existence in theater libraries;
