A reference to JW's 'Ten O'Clock Lecture,' his major public statement of his aesthetic ideas. He first delivered the lecture in London on 20 February 1885. He would repeat it before the University Fine Art Society at the Theatre Royal, Cambridge, on 11 March (see printed invitation, #12590). A version of the text of the lecture may be found at #06791.
