A Capital Conjuror
Magic, Skill, Spiritualism
Discusses some feats of conjuring that Punch believes are so silly as hardly to deserve the name. Laments those who paid 'a guinea' to see William H H Davenport and Ira E Davenport, performers of 'asinine' tricks, but urges those in quest of a good conjuror to visit 'Colonel' Alfred Stodare at the Egyptian Hall, whose performance Punch praises.
