On the afternoon of his lecture, Wilde was taken on a tour of Salt Lake City by the then president of the LDS, John Taylor. The tour included Taylor's own residence, Gardo House, one of the finest homes in the valley.
Wilde referred sarcastically to the Mormon practice of polygamy. He wrote from Kansas City on April 17:
'I have lectured to the Mormons. The Opera House at Salt Lake is an enormous affair about the size of Covent Garden, and holds with ease fourteen families. They sit like this
and are very, very ugly. The President, a nice old man, sat with five wives in the stage box.' 
Still on the subject of multiple wives, Wilde later told an interviewer that Salt Lake interested him because it was "the first city that ever gave a chance to ugly women."
