 The St James Theatre   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
By the eighteen thirties, having amassed quite a considerable fortune, and with his retirement in mind, to say nothing of the encouragement of his extravagant wife who wished to keep up her lavish state of living when the great voice should have ceased to be a commercial asset; Braham decided to build a new theatre.
Owing to building difficulties and local opposition the construction was delayed but eventually accomplished in the 'almost incredibly short space of thirteen weeks, six days of which were so wet as to cause the work to be suspended'.
Grissell and Peto, worked hard, but though the theatre opened on 14 December 1835, the exterior of the building was not completed until the summer of 1836.

Before he returned from the Siege and Battle of Bexar to Goliad in the middle of Dec 1835, Capt. Dimmitt was an avid Mexican Federalist and opposed to separation which was symbolized in the 1824 Mexican tri-color which is also thought to be of his own design.
After the Independence Consultation of November 1835 in San Felipe, Stephen F. Austin, Branch T. Archer and William H. Wharton were sent to the United States to seek aid.
At the convention in November 1835, despite intense debate, the objective remained independent statehood in a Federal Mexican Republic under the Constitution of 1824 rather than a full declaration of independence as a sovereign Republic.

 The Great Moon Hoax
During the final week of August 1835, a long article appeared in serial form on the front page of the New York Sun.
Although the Sun managed to sell many copies of the moon hoax, it is not clear whether people at the time actually believed the story, or simply found it to be an entertaining topic of debate.
On September 16, 1835 the Sun did publish a column in which it discussed the possibility that the story was a hoax, but it never confessed to anything.

 HistoryBuff.com -- History Library -- The Great Moon Hoax of 1835
So fascinating were the descriptions of trees and vegetation, oceans and beaches, bison and goats, cranes and pelicans that the whole town was talking even before the fourth installment appeared on August 28, 1835, with the master revelation of all: the discovery of furry, winged men resembling bats.
So many writers have perpetuated the legend that Harriet Martineau in her Retrospect of Western Travel said a Springfield, Massachusetts, missionary society resolved to send missionaries to the moon to convert and civilize the bat men.
After a number of his competitors, humiliated because they had "lifted" the series and passed it off as their own, upbraided Day, the Sun of September 16, 1835, admitted the hoax.

 Camille Saint-Saëns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
(born Paris, 9 October 1835; died Algiers, 16 December 1921).
Showing Mozartian precocity as both a pianist and composer, he had childhood lessons with Stamaty and Boëly before entering the Conservatoire (1848), where Halévy was his teacher; his dazzling gifts early won him the admiration of Gounod, Rossini, Berlioz and especially Liszt, who hailed him as the world's greatest organist.
From the mid-1890s he adopted a more austere style, emphasizing the classical aspect of his aesthetic which, perhaps more than the music itself influenced Fauré and Ravel.

 Adah Isaacs Menken (1835-1868)
Throughout the years of her life she consistently confused the issue by telling conflicting and varying stories, partly because she was ashamed of her parentage and partly because she was an actress always playing a role.
The likeliest facts seem to be that Menken was born in New Orleans on June 15, 1835, that her mother was a very beautiful French Creole, that her father was Auguste Theodore, a highly respected "free" Negro of Louisiana.
She danced, when a child, in the ballet of the French Opera House in New Orleans.
