Written on stationery printed with "AC" for the Albemarle Club.
The earliest surviving letter from Wilde to Douglas.
The letter is undated; a probable date of writing of November 1892 is given for this letter in "The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde," edited by Merlin Holland & Rupert Hart-Davis. London: Fourth Estate Ltd, 2000, p. 538-539.
Hoping he likes the card-case Wilde has sent as a gift; saying he is off to Paris and asking if Douglas is going to the Scilly Isles; saying "I should awfully like to go away with you somewhere where it is hot and coloured;" mentioning his meetings with [Herbert Beerbohm] Tree; at the top of the first page Wilde has written "Love to Enscombe" [Douglas's friend with whom he shared rooms at Oxford].
