Oscar Wilde, letter to Lord Alfred Douglass
Love to Encombe
I am so glad you are better, and that you like the little cardcase—Oxford is quite impossible in winter
go to Paris next week—for 10 days or so. Are you really going to the Scilly Isles?
I should awfully like to go away with you somewhere—where it is hot and coloured—
I am terribly busy in
town—Tree rushing up to see me on all occasions—also strange and troubling personalities walking in painted pageants—
Of the poem I will write tomorrow.
