No record is currently available as to whether Wilde stayed overnight in Aurora, but it is entirely possible he traveled on by train the 50 miles to Chicago, which was his base for this midwest leg of the tour.
He was certainly in Chicago on the following afternoon prior to traveling up to Racine, WI, for an evening lecture.
