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 earlier lectured in Saint John on October 5, 1882.
For more on Wilde’s “arrest” see note at Moncton.
Carleton Street, Saint John, NB
It was long thought by biographers, and all previous chronologies, that Wilde’s second lecture in Saint John was the final lecture of the North American tour. See Bridgeton, NJ and Yorkville, NY for two later lectures.
