WILDE, Oscar (1854-1900). Autograph letter signed ('Oscar Wilde') to Mrs Wren, 16 Tite Street, [postmarked 13 December 1888], 3 pages, 8vo , with integral blank envelope (tear to envelope).
WILDE, Oscar (1854-1900). Autograph letter signed ('Oscar Wilde') to Mrs Wren, 16 Tite Street, [postmarked 13 December 1888], 3 pages, 8vo , with integral blank envelope (tear to envelope). Wilde writes 'how charmed I am with Chrissie's present. It is a very sweet picture of him, and I prize it very much in memory of my little friend. I have considered it my duty to write him a letter expressing my gratitude. When you come back from Bournemouth I hope we will see you. Give my kind regards to your husband.' Emily Wren, daughter of G.W. Horn of Richmond, was the second wife of Walter Wren (1834-1898), teacher, by whom she had four daughters and three sons; Wilde's letter to her son, 'Chrissie', has not been located. Her husband ran a crammer in Powis Square, specialising in exams for the Indian Civil Service; and also stood unsucessfully for Parliament. Peile's Biographical Register of Christ's College, 1505-1905 (1913, vol. II, p. 526) states that 'he had a kind heart and a liberal hand; and did himself some injustice by a Bohemianism, partly affected.' Not published in The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde , ed. Merlin Holland and Rupert Hart-Davis (2000).
