Wilde traveled to Utica in the drawing room car of the New York train arriving on the evening of the lecture - a little later than expected at 5:15 PM.
He would have needed his famous fur overcoat as he arrived amid banks of snow in the city.
Following the lecture to a "large and cultivated" audience he was given a reception at the home of former mayor Charles W. Hutchinson, and then entertained at the Utica Club before being driven to the depot to catch an onward train at 11:22 PM that evening.
