Dated by butterfly and address; the reference to 'various addresses' suggests this was soon after he moved to 454 Fulham Road (December 1884).

Possibly Philip Henry Wodehouse Currie (1834-1906), diplomat and ambassador [more], or Sir Edmund Currie (1834-1913), distiller and philanthropist [more].

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wilde (1854-1900), writer, critic and playwright [more].
