An audience that was quite complimentary both in size and quality ventured out last evening, despite the unpleasant character of the weather, to listen to the lecture on "Art Decoration," which Mr. Wilde had evolved from his inner consciousness for the edification and delectation of benighted Columbus.
Ohio State Journal, May 4, 1882
The lecturer was greeted at Comstock's last night with a large and appreciative audience. It was one of culture and refinement; not one of dress and brilliancy attracted by the operas but one that came to hear and think of the beautiful. This large audience brought out on an inclement evening for a lecture not recognized as a popular one, is the best endorsement that the Columbus Art Association has yet publicly had.
