李鐘玨:《新加坡風土記》13

51 牛車水一帶,妓館櫛比,聞注籍於護衛司之妓女,共有三千數百人,而此外之私娼女伶,尚不計其數。皆廣州府人,或自幼賣出洋,或在坡生長者。

52 頻年香港販幼女來坡,賣入妓院者踵相接。領事憫之,率同華紳言於英總督,允下護衛司議章保護,設保良局,以時查察,於是此風少息。

53 戲園有男班,有女班,大坡共四五處,小坡一二處,皆演粵劇,間有演閩劇、潮劇者,惟彼鄉人往觀之,戲價最賤,每人不過三四占,合銀二三分,並無兩等價目。

54 叻中酒樓無多,廣菜、番菜各一二家。凡宴客在各家園林者,多菜兼中西,酒飲白蘭地、威四搿、香賓等番釀,飲粵東糯米等酒者已少,紹興酒則如瓊漿玉液矣。

55 客寓亦寥寥無多,不如香港、粵垣、上海遠甚。輪船到埠,亦無接客之人,必須自雇小艇,運行李至岸,另喚腳夫、或雇馬車裝載。然腳夫多閩人,馬夫多土人,言語不通,易受需索,故孤客遠臨,極形不便。
