Text inscribed in ink l.c.: "Did you notice an amusingly muddled reporter's paragraph in the Daily Telegraph describing, in words strangely familiar to me, an interview between Clifford Bax and Oscar Wilde, in which the latter disclosed his idea of a yellow scheme for the costumes in 'Salome'? That interview must have taken place in 1902. Does the above scribble recall it to you?".
