Testimony of Sidney Wright, porter at the Albemarle Club
(April 3,1895)

Wright was examined by Wilde's attorney, Sir Edward Clark

Wright: I am hall porter at the Albemarle Club.  Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Wilde are members of the club.  On 18th February the Marquess of Queensberry handed me a card which has been produced. Before handing me the card Lord Queensberry wrote some words on it.  Lord Queensberry said he wished me to give that to Mr. Wilde.  I looked at the card but did not understand it.  I made an entry on the back of it of the date and the time at which it was handed to me.  I put it in an envelope which I addressed "Mr. Oscar Wilde."  When Mr. Oscar Wilde came to the club, on 28th February, I handed it to him, saying that Lord Queensberry wished me to give it to Mr. Wilde.
