Oscar WILDE (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900), als to Alsager VIAN (Alsager Richard Vian 1863-1924, Editor Court & Society Review), undated but September 9th 1887 by postmark, folded octavo, on headed notepaper, four pages of text, Beaufort Club, 32 Dover Street. W., and hand addressed XVI, Tite Street; with 16 Tite Street, Chelsea S.W. Printed envelope, addressed Alsager Vian, 3 Craven Street, Strand, WC, pm London SW, Sept 9, 87 My Dear Vian Shall I do for you an article called the "Child Philosopher"? It will be on Mark Twains amazing and amusing record of the answers of American children at a Board School. Some of them such as Republicans - "a sinner mentioned in the Bible", or Democrat - "a vessel usually filled with beer", are excellent. Come and dine at Pagani's in Portland Street on Friday - 7.30. No dress - just ourselves and a flask of Italian wine - afterwards we will smoke cigarettes and Talk over the Journalistic article - could we go to your rooms, I am so far off, and clubs are difficult to Talk in. This however is for you entirely to settle. Also send me your address again like a good fellow - I have lost it. I think your number is excellent, but as usual had to go to S. James' Street to get a copy. Even Grosvenor Place does not get the C&S. Till Thursday night! This is all/wrong, isn't it, Truly yours, Oscar Wilde The article Child Philosopher mentioned appeared in the Court & Society Review Pagani's Italian Swiss restaurant in Great Portland Street
