The House Beautiful
St. John Daily Sun, October 13, 1882
[Original unseen—as noted in Oscar Wilde’s Progress Down East, by Rose Snider, The New England Quarterly, Vol. 13, No. 1 (Mar., 1940), p. 19.]
‘Halifax papers of Wednesday morning speak very favourably of Oscar Wilde’s second lecture entitled “The House Beautiful”; describing it as an honest lecture, delivered with much better effect and of vastly greater interest than the other.’
On this occasion Wile’s subject was The House Beautiful, the talk he reserved for when he lectured in the same city more than once. Wilde had lectured in Halifax the previous day, October 9, 1882.
