Transcription: 

have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy, and who find in simplicity a subtle strangeness.
    If you come to tea some Wednesday about 5.30 o[']c[lock]. I will be charmed to write your name in the book.
    I hope your painting is going on all right.

Truly yours
Oscar Wilde
